Today, Bethanne discusses her preparation for her homebirth and how she was intentional about her care and had an empowering experience. Here’s a little more from Bethanne about her birth that wasn’t in the episode!
“I feel that part of the reason why my labor was so extended was because it took me time to move thru the process of fully opening up to & allowing the next phase of my life to unfold – what she was bringing to me.. genuine, real, uninhibited HAPPINESS. I needed to really step into it, let go of old stories + reasons of the past that dimmed the light, and intently release attachments to resistance of this on any level.
Because of my baby’s posterior position, I had to do head stands and inversions to try and turn her (crazy!). Great attempt but it didn’t work. This positioning was the only reason it was excruciating for the second half. Totally worth it and I don’t even remember that feeling now!”
