    I have seen it over and over. Fear trickling in from outside and not leaving; friends, spouses, doctor’s and in laws.
    Women MUST say who they want at their births, always.

    What a fabulous idea! Well done. With all this amazing information and belief women cannot help but be empowered and moved towards once again believing in giving birth 🙂

  3. the hormonal/emotional connection is so powerful and something that not all professionals respect, let alone know about, so this is a fantastic avenue to get it out there. i hope lots of people are watching. thank you. thank you.

    Yes! Almost all mammals will stop labor until they feel safe. Our hormones are an amazing and wonderful thing, unfortunately, every fear we pick up on labor will cause our hormones to change. We are constantly forced to go against our instincts in medicalized birth! Go INA…

    I agree with that 100% It is very important to choose well in who you want present at your birth… fear is contagious sometimes. Everybody’s energy effects the birthing woman and I can relate to going off in a tent or something alone to give birth with no external distractions and get the job done.
