So often we get lured into this trap of an idea: you can prepare for Birth, but you canโ€™t really prepare for motherhood. It just happens.

โ€ผ๏ธSPOILER ALERTโ€ผ๏ธ Theyโ€™re intimately linked.

The problem? Traditional childbirth classes:
โžก๏ธ focus on simply avoiding pain. Soโ€ฆ if we experience painโ€ฆ what? Did we fail?
โžก๏ธ ignore the fact that childbirth is a rite of passage, and itโ€™s sacred. They focus on just getting through, not appreciating and *gasp* enjoying it.
โžก๏ธleave us unprepared for the new version of us weโ€™ll be meeting on the other side. If the whole time weโ€™re just learning to relax (which, relaxation is good!), we arenโ€™t focusing on the aspects that will build confidence in ourselves in birth AND motherhood for the long haul: tapping back into our intuition, setting boundaries (and why we need to!)โ€ฆ what our actual thoughts and opinions even are about birth! Kind ofโ€ฆ a big chunk of info.

If youโ€™re anything like me, your desire is to be the absolute best mother that you can be. Hereโ€™s the deal. We become that mother when weโ€™re prepared to meet that mother.

When you learn to connect to your primal mother, to soothe and regulate your nervous system, to take charge of your decision makingโ€ฆ you better believe you become a force to be reckoned with both in birth and motherhood. And isnโ€™t that what we truly want? To step into these experiences feeling confident and prepared for whatever awaits us?

If this is you, I highly encourage you to apply for our next cohort of the Homebirth Collective, running Jan 2- March 24. Itโ€™s not childbirth education- itโ€™s so much more. Perfect timing for mamas who will be about 12-28 weeks pregnant at the beginning of Jan!

The link to apply is in my bio, or send me a DM for more info. โœจ
