Today, I feel so blessed to have my natural birth story featured on Mama Natural . If it can inspire one mom considering natural birth- BLESSING!
For far too long, us women have been raised believing the lie that natural birth is just too hard & drugs are the only way to go!
I understand that birth can be a sensitive subject, BUT IT REALLY SHOULDN’T BE…. birth is NOT a competition! There is no shame is taking an epidural, etc, but there’s equally NOTHING enlightened about not sharing the beauty & benefits of your natural birth because of fear of judgement or being labeled a “mom shamer” when NOTHING could be further from the truth!
Sharing my own experience of natural birth is NOT about shaming anyone…
- It IS about fighting social STIGMAS
- It IS about truly INFORMED consent
- It is about EMPOWERING women
- It IS about talking FACTS & RISK
- It IS about CORPORATE GREED
- It IS about YOU & your BABY!
Again, it bares repeating… NO ONE can make you feel shamed. Shame is a choice!
Sharing a different birthing experience is about LOVE & EMPOWERMENT.
Let’s change the narrative ladies!
