The never ending list of "required" parenting skills can sometimes feel overwhelming, particularly when there is so much conflicting advice thanks to the wonders of the web. When it comes to the safety of your child however, it really isn't a question of why you need to know, it's a case of what do I need to know?! Here are 10 first aid skills to keep in your arsenal.
Conception and pregnancy has long been the domain of the medical world. I am definitely not against modern medicine and its role in creating babies but I do think there needs to be a paradigm shift. Not only looking at conception and fertility as a biological and physical action but involving the mind, our thinking and psychology.
I encourage all pregnant women (and their partners) to research the pros and cons of birthing at home; or in a birth centre; or in a public hospital; or in a private hospital. You need to make an informed decision that is right for YOU and your family. For example, don’t just choose a private hospital because you’ll get your own room. Choose your birth location and team because they will provide you what you want in your birthing journey - get really clear about how you want your birth to FEEL, Mama.
“You’re going to give birth WHERE?” is a common response when you tell friends and family that you are planning on birthing your baby at home. As a mama who has experienced both hospital and home births, I believe it is important for all women to birth where they feel most safe, most comfortable, and most empowered. For some women that will be in hospital, for others that will be in a birth centre, and for some mamas that will be at home - all birth choices deserve to be respected.
