Call me naive or stupid but I believe that I have the best mind set pre-labour that I could have, and for that I feel lucky! I won't go into labour tense or scared but I will be relaxed and have the tools in place to ensure I can trust my body to do what it was created to do. I am also lucky that I have found the hypnobirthing community that understand that positive stories are always good to share and the negative ones don't need not saying, but worded correctly with the intention of not scaring someone else, as everyone's birthing story is so different!
I feel that both mothers and birthing partners really need to come together to keep the positive vibes going! It seems that the world is always to quick to judge, be it with the birth of a child, or the choices made after that point. We should support one another and instead of saying, wow that really won't happen, we need to say, wow that's an amazing idea, tell me more!
