“If my baby is ‘big’ should I plan to have an early induction?…”
This article follows on beautifully from Jean Sutton’s Optimal Foetal Positioning.
A wee side note to inspire you – A good friend of mine gave birth to her 10lb 40z baby at home without a stitch. She was able to ‘let go’, trust her body had what it takes, and let her instincts guide her. AND HER BODY KNEW WHAT TO DO. So, keep the faith. xx
IT TAKES MORE THAN A PELVIS TO BIRTH A BABY!
Here is a great write up on the optimal foetal positioning we learn about in BirthWorks Classes, and what you can do to give your baby lots of room to be born. Also a wonderful YouTube clip from Samantha Thurlby-Brooks of Joyful Childbirth Auckland demonstrating the principles.
YOU are a strong woman, just like this Mama. Read this fantastic article from Birth Without Fear & be encouraged!
Such an interesting night on Wednesday watching ‘A Breech in the System’ & hearing from Megan Platt of Petite Feet about her birth experiences. And today, an awesome workshop for mothers of new babies featuring interactive sessions from Beckie Carter of LifeFoods, Leanne Hunter Baby Massage teacher & Corinne Rooney The Sling Lady.
A big thank you to all our amazing speakers & women who participated, I hope you’ve come away with lots to think about & hopefully to put into action. Look out for more workshops in the new year!
