Why Choose Independent Labour and Birth Programs?
Ready Mum was founded to create opportunities for mum's and families to learn more about pregnancy, labour and birth, transitioning to motherhood and parenthood from an informative perspective.
The approach aims at providing, un-biased, informative education so parents feel confident making informed decisions.
Labour, birth, parenting and breastfeeding are big experiences and with that comes transition and growth.
Like other experiences in life, be it joyous, traumatic or challenging we are shaped by the journey.
Ideally we choose paths that leaves positive imprints on us.
In our journey to meeting our baby you can; Wing it
or gain more knowledge to a topic you may not realise has more to learn until you start to learn.
Birth is unpredictable, but birth can be approached with confidence, great skills that help in labour and birth, great support in the moments of vulnerability. I say moments of vulnerability because that's when we usually need adequate great support, moments of joy is light and easy.
In many cases, parents make birth decisions in the midst of labour in times of absolute vulnerability. Knowing and having tools to help navigate those intense moments plays a big role on the path that follows when birthing.
Care providers are fantastic at telling you what they recommend. The question is whether the recommendation is the right choice for you and if not how will you as a woman in labour know that. Do you feel confident in the knowledge you have or do you recognise that more is required? Only you know that.
Research shows birth is not a satisfying experience for most women. What is a satisfying birth experience to you, not to your mum or your friends, to you? What does birth mean to you other than having a baby? Maybe you need to sit with that thought for a bit and maybe not.
Like Life, no one can guarantee the type of birth experience you will have. But like anything in life, you can wing it, leave it to to fate or you can do what you can to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally, physically, with the support of your partner to give yourself the best chance at a calm, positive, confident birth when it begins.
That's why you choose an independent birthing program.
" Labour and birth is challenging....of course it is! But that does not mean you can't have moments of smiles, eating and feeling great. Learn to connect your mind and body, learn to what is possible not impossible"Ready Mum
