Keep It Simple, Sisters!
1. Create a Birth Map
It is Your Birth – Your Way.
2. Surround yourself with Support.
People who are prepared to be informed, understand your birth map
and agree to adhere to it.
These people lift you up, trust you and know you.
3. Consider your Life Beyond Birth.
How will you manager the early weeks, do you have support?
Do you understand normal baby behaviour?
Do you know the local mothers groups?
Enjoy your pregnancy.
Write letters to your baby, sing songs, rub your belly, keep a journal, take strolls.
If you are already a Mother:
take time to read with your child/ren,
include them in preparations,
slow down as much as you can – limit the extra-activities if it is getting too much.
5. Have a Gathering of Supporters.
This is a gathering of women (usually), but essentially it is about bringing together the people who are supporting you during pregnancy, labour and beyond.
