Nervous about birth?? Focus on the FACT that women give birth NATURALLY all-day everyday, all over the world and have been since the beginning of humans. Most births have been/are Natural Births. Women's bodies were designed to do this. The billions of humans proove it! Birth is hard, VERY hard, but stay in-tune with this connection to other mamas. Keep it in mind: others before you and others after you do this. You can too. If you can appreciate WHY it's hard work, you can work WITH the contractions. The intensity is YOUR OWN body, your own energy, opening in a new & unique way. Release your tension & fears, surrender to this intensity. Work WITH it. Even meditate on it's strength, will it to be strong! When you can "be okay" with this Bigger-Than-You stuff that's taking over, you can start to enjoy (YES-even enjoy) your birth experience!!
