Growing a baby - BIRTHING a baby! Jayyyysus... talk about taking a few quantum leaps into the really big guns of figuring out who I truly am through figuring out what i'm made of when going through one of THE most mentally and physically challenging experiences of life.
My first pregnancy, with my son River who is now 4 and a half, was honestly the most connected i've felt to my true self, and SUCH a huge period of growth for me.
In this episode I chat about my experience at my sister's hypno-birthing class that blew my mind and got me started on the journey to discovering the incredible power of birth to be a transformative process, and about the tools i learned and the key ideas that brought me to a place of having complete and utter trust in my body and my baby to have an incredible, intervention free birth at home.
And of course I blimmin' sit you down for story time to hear about the day that River made his way into the world and how I had an amazing out-of-body experince as I got out of the way of my body doing its thaaaaang.
