Education; which leads to normalcy and trust: which leads to relaxation and empowerment.

I believe part of what helped ME *most* was the fact that my mom spoke so openly and positively about natural birth with my sisters and I from the time we were very young. It has always been considered normal and nothing to be feared. The knowledge that I was created to do it left me feeling empowered and capable. I don't think I ever questioned whether I would birth naturally or not. Somehow I just knew I would.

Beyond that, I loved and very much valued my Bradley classes (again, education/trust/relaxation), and my husband was definitely a HUGE source of strength and encouragement!
