Trust the process
My mantra when teaching doula students is "Trust the Process".
There are many different ways this philosophy impacts on life in general, but never more so than in birth.
From focussing excessively on a "due date", to worrying about whether a baby will be "too big" for a mother's pelvis, or being so obsessed with the foetal monitor during labour, that the mother, the key player, is ignored.
Trust the process ... a baby will trigger labour when it is ready.
Trust the process ... a woman will grow a baby the perfect size to birth for her body.
Trust the process ... the mother is the most important factor in any labour.
Do you believe we encourage women to trust themselves, their babies and the process of birth? #birth #childbirth #duedate
