This is YOUR birth. YOU get to call the shots.
But thinking about it all can be a little stressful.
So in this lesson I'll help you work through the different aspects of birth so you can come up with your birth preference list (AKA your birth plan).
Be sure to use the course workbook when thinking through your birth preferences.
And just do a topic every day or two so you don't get too overwhelmed. We'll also talk about the role of fear in birth, and how you help alleviate any tensions you may be feeling.
Lesson 6: Owning your birth preferences + dealing with fear
