F : Fears
Overcome your pregnancy and birth fears to have an amazing birth. Having a baby is a life-changing event in any woman’s life.
Only the frantic of fear can stop you achieving your positive birth experience. Your body and your baby know exactly what to do. Clear your fears for a positive birth.
Fear is an emotion, it’s energy in action and it’s there to alert you to dangers and to keep you safe and in your comfort zone.
Listen to how a real or a perceived threat can trigger the fight/flight response.
“Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.”
