What makes the idea of labor and birth so scary?

For most people, it's the fear of the unknown. So...let's get to know birth!

 

While the basics of labor and childbirth remain the same, you bring your own experiences and preferences into it. 


Birth Languages recognizes that each mother and couple is unique. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach! We will explore how your personality, past experiences, and relationship dynamics might play into your experience of birth.

By gaining insight into your unique Birth Language and the tools you can use to support it, you will be prepared to positively engage with labor. You and your partner will be equipped to work as a team and approach your baby's birth-day with confidence.
