Active Birth Classes

Have just had an Active Birth weekend course and it has been amazing.
Feel absolutely dazed and just want to crash and sleep for 24 hours. Very intensive course but oh so empowering!

For the first time I feel confident in myself and my body. I know what will happen and so does DP. I feel "safe" to follow my instincts!
The instructor was focusing on all the different aspects, natural, medical, partners help etc!
We tried the different positions for different stages and it all just feels so right!

It was perfect, just perfect and Dp is so extremely happy. It just feels right, the whole process!
Happy happy happy!

I can do this and I don't feel afraid of the pain! If things doesn't go the way I want them to then I won't be disapointed but at least I have tried!!!


Can not reccomend it highly enough for other pregnant people!

Wella
I'm wondering if they mentioned 'inductions' at your class.

I was really looking forward to an 'active' birth and felt v empowered at the thought.

It is looking more and more like I will be induced, so I wonder if you picked up any hints. I dread the thought of having to be on a bed and monitored etc.

Lovely Wella :))

Isn't attitude to pain interesting? It sounds terribly wishy washy to say 'embrace the pain' but if you do and you allow yourself to deal with it without fear, you set off a chain reaction in your mind and body releasing chemicals which make the labour go much more smoothly.

Andy, induction does unfortunatley often mean intervention but many women manage a normal birth in spite of all the paraphinalia that accompanies induction.

The midwife was talking about this very subject last week at antenatal. She said that in other countries pain in labour is looked on more positively. Of course you're in pain, you're in labour. Its only really in the UK where we think 'pain is bad, lets do something about it'. Its a very medical way of thinking about things. She also said, with every contraction you have one less to go, so look at them in a positive way too.

It's such an unknown quantity and that can be alarming, especially if you're not in a position to deal with it. If you're walking through a busy hospital, thinking of other things, answering questions or being distracted then it's hard to to 'cope' and you begin to lose your grip. It's so important to be able to 'go into yourself' during pains and it's important to feel that there is quiet, confident support around you. Ideally the world would stop as each pain came, that's the kind of peace you need to remain calm and in control.

Basically the opposite to every single TV dramatised birth you've ever seen :D
