Are You Using Your Brain??!
Sometimes, when we are faced with people in authority telling us what to do, we revert back to teacher – child, or parent – child mode and find ourselves agreeing to things that we don’t really understand. Or feel may not be quite right for us, just because the consultant or the midiwife told us to. Or, we didn’t know that ‘we were allowd to do that’. Or quite simply we didn’t know. At The Calm Birth School we talk a lot about how impact of your environment and the people within your environment can and will affect your ability to birth optimially. So here is a handy little tool to have in your toolbox once you go into labour and are working with your care providers. That will allow you to gain a better understanding of the options that are open to you, so you feel more in control and ultimately like you got the best birth for you and your family on the day that you go into labour. So start using your BRAIN today!
