Knowledge is Power!
All my life I have wanted to be a mom, as most little girls do. I dreamed of that perfect day when they placed him or her on my chest and I instantly fell in love. As the day got closer to delivery of my first, I started getting NERVOUS, FEARFUL of what might happen, SCARED that I did not know all the answers, my sense of control was disappearing. Everything I knew was from family and friends who gave their birth stories. I was so excited to meet my baby but scared all at the same time. I was just supposed to go in a trust the nurse and doctor that I did not even know with my life and the life of my child??? Um no! This was not me, but I did not know what else to do.
I had nurses and doctors disagreeing on my care and I didn’t know enough to say how I felt, or what was right for me. I felt helpless. I felt alone. I started doubting if I could even be a good mother because I knew nothing about bringing a baby into this world, breastfeeding or calming a baby (Geesh I could not even calm myself down). After 3 days in the hospital I finally met my son. It was the most amazing, breathtaking moment.
After my first child, I knew I wanted to be a labor and delivery nurse and help calm the nerves and provide education to mothers preparing for delivery. So that is what I have done for the last 12 years! I give women the resources to be able to calm their fears, be more knowledgeable about the labor and delivery process, and be able to make informed decisions instead of just following along with whatever the hospital tells them. I empower women to trust themselves and their bodies.
Did you know that you could tell the doctor “NO”? What about telling the nurse what you want for your delivery and making it happen, instead of just going along with what they want? Your labor nurse might be in her first day of labor or her 1,000th you never know. Take charge of your birth and family now!
How many times have you said, “If only I knew somebody that really understood what goes on during labor & delivery and the truth about how to deliver safely.”? Have you every thought “I wish I had someone in my life to tell me what to do next in labor.”? You NOW know someone…ME!!!!
