When preparing for birth and a new postpartum life it is important that birthing people prepare in a way that is unique and internal to them. Using meditations specific to pregnancy and birth are a great way to learn to slow thoughts and focus on just one thing. When birthing, a laboring person must not be asked to multitask, but be able to focus on the journey at hand.
The Preparing for Birth curriculum understands this - and is truly where evidence based care and the intuition and wisdom passed down to us from our own birthing ancestors meets. We understand that a birthing person and the coming baby likely know more about their own birth than we do and it is by learning to connect to that intuition that how to birth can begin to seem a bit more clear.
We also understand that when preparing for birth, an individual doesn’t yet know how the birth will unfold - so preparing with just one tool - like birth hypnosis or a single comfort measure will only be enough if the lucky situations arises that the one tool you have is the one tool you need. In actuality, preparation is best when we have a number of tools to choose from so whatever arises, a family is prepared. Using meditations is a helpful way to learn to slow the mind, to remain focused even when the mind wanders and when interrupted.
