“The best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray.”


Things can go wrong even though you have carefully planned what you are going to do, as Robert Burns’ poem “To a Mouse” reflects in his words,  “The best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray.
This, unfortunately, is true in birth as well. Although a cesarean birth was not in her original plans, just look at this beautiful new family!

  If this must happen to you…ask for the “Friendly Cesarean”.

Do you need to take a childbirth class?


Yes! But that’s just my opinion. BB_120409_226511-670x220

I say yes because I believe that the more you know, the less there is to fear. And we all know that fear is not our friend, especially in labor. When we are afraid, we produce adrenaline. Adrenaline can actually stop labor.

I say yes because I believe the more you know, the more empowered you feel. And we all know that if you feel empowered, you will make your own choices and so be happier with your own outcomes.photo_preg_birthclasses

I say yes because I believe you love your baby. And we all know that when you learn what is best for your baby, you become more resolved to give it to your baby.

I say yes because I believe the more you know, the more you feel an equal to those around you. And we all know that when you feel as an equal, you do not feel a victim at the mercy of someone else.

I say yes because I believe you should know what your chosen birth site and environment is all about. We all know that when you are comfortable with your environment, you are more relaxed and willing to let go to nature.

I say yes because I believe the more you know, the more options you realize you have, for yourself and for your baby.imagdes

How Do You Feel About Childbirth?

Ignorance = Fear
Fear = Pain
At least in the birth process.
Solution….do not remain ignorant about your child’s birth or your body or your careprovider or…well, you get what I mean.
Knowledge = Empowerment
