How to train for birth...

Would you run a marathon WITHOUT training?

Madness.... If I signed up to run a marathon and decided to turn up on the day with zero training, my friends would think I was crazy! Imagine trying to run 42k without having any preparation, without having researched it, focused, taking time to amend your diet and training your muscles by going running and to the gym, ready for the big day.....

So what about birth?

Why do so many women give birth unprepared? Giving birth is the biggest physical event your body will undertake, potentially taking four times the amount of time a marathon does, pushing your mindset and your body, an experience that will ultimately change your life forever..... ❤ yet so often giving birth is often perceived as an event that is out of our control. Well, it’s really not. It’s soooo not!

Imagine feeling excited as you prepared for birth, feeling inspired and calm & in control!!!

Ready for the best experience of your life.....? Because it absolutely can be!!

All you’ve got to do is prepare! Remember, it doesn’t have to be a homebirth, a water birth, a short birth or a natural birth to be a positive birth. It just needs to make you feel like the absolute superwoman you are. That means feeling listened to, respected, calm and in control. How can you prepare for that? Through educating yourself on as much as you can- the science, the anatomy, the evidence, the female structure, the hormones and the muscles. Read books, attend classes, talk to birth workers. Put as much passion and dedication into your birth as you would for any other huge life event- a wedding? A marathon? An overseas move?

We prepare for all of these, so why not birth? 🤷‍♀️
