I was contacted by Kathleen O'Hara Farren a mum of three who wanted to pass on her wisdom to me and you about preparing for pregnancy.
Kathleen has 3 children. Her first birth was a hospital birth, her middle birth was a home birth and her last birth was a hospital birth but she has shifted into the perception that she was home in her body.
We are so used to self-care on our external self, however the internal self needs us to give so much love to. Keep going back to beautiful words and tell yourself this is a loving experience. Love carries you through no matter what way it unfolds.
Take care of your food, your physical self, your attitudes and exercises but please don’t give yourself a hard time.
You realise support is coming from everywhere. There is more than you and your baby. Miracles start to happen. Opportunities arise that give birth to greater opportunities that lead to where you need to be.
I’m not in control but I’m in control of me. I’m going to do it the best I can.
Tips for Mum to be:
Talk to people who have had healthy birth experiences. Seek out woman who have had natural births in local breast feeding groups.
Create a birth plan and practice saying with strength “Have you seen my birth plan”.
Get in sync with your hips and spend time in the wild – near the river and the ocean to connect with your inner wild woman.
The moment of birth is a cosmic connection. Pregnancy is a sacred time.
Listen to who you want to hear and seek them out.
Beauty, love, respect, strength and wildness.
Practice hip dancing, the more relaxed you are the better. During your labour create a cave like experience either with your room or in your imagination.
