Why this Info Matters

  • Women are not familiar with birth
  • Women are taught to fear birth
  • Women are not encouraged to trust their bodies
  • Women perceive that they need outside help
  • Women have lost the ability to connect from within

You can do this. Educate yourself. Trust your body. Listen to your body and your baby.
