Birth Matters is a spirited manifesta showing us how to trust women, value birth, and reconcile modern life with a process as old as our species.

There are so many good books to read on Birth and Natural Birth. The more things you can do to fill your mind with positive birth stories and the discovering the power that you have within your own body - the better!

I stay away from the books that are written to scare me about what modern medicine is doing wrong and how horrible I am if I don't do it the author's way. I can see the risks and  the benefits of modern medicine. By doing your own research, you will find what parts of the medical model you'll want at your birth and which ones you don't.

You don't have that much time to read during these nine months - so make it count. Research the facts and then focus on what you want. If you want a kind, soft, gentle birth - then put those images into your mind and dwell on them.
You have to believe to achieve! Envision them happening to you and your birth companion while you're bringing your new little baby into the world.

The next step is figuring out what you have to do to make it happen. You have to be VERY proactive if you want the birth that you are imagining. In the real world - it will not be served to you on a golden platter. You have to set yourself up for success and take responsibility.

How do you have the best birth possible?
By getting the right support, filling your mind with the best birth images and stories and practice - lots of practice. You get out of your birth what you put into it. You can do this - I know you can.

"When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change."
