This week’s story comes from Helen, from Natural Beauty with Baby. Helen is from the UK and loves blogging about natural skincare and her journey through motherhood with her little man, Jonah. Here is her story …
Mini Mummi was encouraging mums to share their positive birth stories. I’d recently posted Jonah’s birth story on my own blog, so I was very happy to share my story with Mini Mummi! It’s encouraging and healthy for first time mums-to-be to hear positive stories rather than the overly dramatic accounts that often appear on television.
This week’s story comes from Hannah, the Peaceful Mama. Hannah has three beautiful children, and three fantastic birth stories! Today, I’m sharing the story of her first birth with you.
My first birth was close to ten years ago! Typically, as a first time mum, I prepared by reading ALLLLL the books in the library 😉 To try to condense my thoughts, I will whiz through these stories and bring out the highlights. What revolutionised my first birthing experience and set me on the path I am on today, was some key things I discovered prior to this birth. I implemented them and consolidated my beliefs around birthing and the village, as well as the right education on labour, birthing and breastfeeding/postnatal care.
So often we read and hear horror stories about birthing experiences. While these need to be shared, they can also introduce fear or concern for expectant mothers. Let’s try to balance the scales a little by sharing positive birth stories!
Did you have a positive birth where everything went smoothly and as planned?
Perhaps your birth experience didn’t go as planned but you have some positive aspects you prefer to focus on?
