Fear and Pain in Labor: Tools for Strengthening Trust

Fear and Pain in Labor: Tools for Strengthening Trust

with Simran Adeniji

a snippet:  “A big key to natural childbirth is to get out of your own way, lose your mind, and get into your body.”  Simran quotes Pam England, author of Birthing from Within. She goes on to explain theories of pain, tools to open up to the fears of labor and parenthood; all with a humble and effective sweetness only a mother and midwife could bring. This episode offers many wonderful moments of growth for anyone who experiences fear and pain, not only birthing mothers!
