Let’s face it: being part of the birthing revolution is not about being a passenger. You gotta decide, people! Seriously, you have to decide to do things or not do things or do them, but at the right time, or not do them and tell people, or not do them and not tell people. Eesh. Pick a topic, any topic. Circumcision, epidural, lotus birth, placenta encapsulation, co-sleeping, vegetarianism, breastfeeding, blood work, disease screening, ultrasound, family around, at home, in the hospital, birthing center or ocean. In order to make a difference, we must be mindful of our decisions because people are gonna ask. Being strong in your conviction means having thought it out. Follow this simple 3-Question path that will lead you right to confidence.
1. Does this choice feel right in my gut? [yes or no]
2. Does this choice increase my connection to myself, my partner, my baby, etc.? [yes or no]
3. Does this choice support the wellbeing of my baby and myself? [yes or no]
No one can choose for you when you choose for yourself.
