We continue to celebrate reaching 2 million downloads for the show! This is part 2 of my two-part minisode with some of my favorite birth mantras to convey physiology and help you navigate labor. If you haven’t yet, make sure you go listen to the previous episode first. These mantras are part of what I talk about with my doulas clients during prenatals, and I hope that they also prove super useful for you, and that in a way, it will be like I’m there in spirit during your birth, cheering you on, if you are reminded of these mantras during your labor.
My next 6 mantras:
- You birth with your body, not with your mind
- Go and explore it
- Just get through this one
- The uterus transforms, baby rotates
- Can’t but push
- Would you like to pee?
