Induction Seduction

Induction Seduction

"Induction is sometimes necessary and life saving. Other times it is just a routine part of a crazy trend." Pam England, author Ancient Map for Modern Birth.

You know as well as I do, that a baby born when he or she is ready is the smartest way to go when giving birth (with normal, healthy conditions). Imagine you're told that for the safety of your baby it's wisest to go ahead and induce labor - do you really know everything you need to know about that process in order to mindfully and from your heart, say yes?

Listen closely ladies, there's more to the story - and the decision - than a simple yes or no! Induction seduction is running rampant in our culture and our birthing mother's and their children are the ones most deeply effected!

It's safe to say that the majority of women don't really know the ins and outs of induced labor. It's a common assumption that is must be safe or it wouldn't happen as often as it does! And though it is true that in some not-so-usual situations it can indeed be the best thing, as a common practice an induced labor is most often accompanied by a cascade of intervention.

but Privacy Affects Your Birth

I'm sure you'd agree with me when I say: it's hard to perform a private act when it feels like the public is present! Imagine trying to empty your bladder while three or four people you don't know are watching - yikes!

There are four pillars for birth:

Set Your Intention

Set Your Intention

"Intention is the beginning of your path.  In fact, it's the most important part of the entire path, because it's the beginning of it."

Prepare for each pregnancy and birth as if it is the only pregnancy and birth you will ever have.

That may seem a lofty goal and that the bar is set unattainably high.  However, with your mind set to approach each pregnancy this way, an energy is ignited that works to fuel this intention.  The power of intention is a mighty thing and holds the potential to make your birth experience something equally powerful.  Flip that coin and you may find that a lack of intention is a breeding ground for manipulation, pain and regret.

Do you know the line from country singer Aaron Tippin -

"you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything"?

Let’s quickly ID some of the indicators women feel when there’s an issue with balance in the pelvis: low back ache beyond what you’d expect from added weight, burning sensation on the front, low side of the abdomen, ache in the middle of the pubic bone, hip ache/pain – typically only one side or the other, a twinge on the low front of the abdomen when your provider palpates your belly and there may be more.
