Moms Can Choose *Everything* in Childbirth!
At Hypnobabies it is important that our wonderful expectant parents understand that “all of the choices in pregnancy, childbirth, postpatrum and your baby’s care are yours to make!” The article below from Birth Takes a Village reinforces this message and underscores the importance of taking responsibility for your baby’s birth. Remember: someone will, and it needs to be you!
There’s no “Have To” in Childbirth
by Jessica Austin on January 2, 2013
If there is one phrase I’d like to get rid of in birth, it’s “have to”. There are no “have tos” in birth, there are only medical recommendations and a birthing woman’s informed choice.
There is no such thing as “My baby is breech so I have to have a hospital birth.”
There is no “I have to be induced because I’m 42 weeks”.
There is no “I have to have continuous monitoring of my baby’s heart rate because I chose to receive an epidural”.
If you have a doctor or registered midwife, they can make recommendations, and you make an informed choice about those recommendations.
Speak about your birth choices in a way that keeps the power with YOU:
