Episode #63: Tips on Mindset, Environment, Support & Preparation for Your Labor and Birth

Being well-prepared for your labor and birth is one of the most empowering feelings in the world. I love doing my part and helping moms from all walks of life get ready for a beautiful pregnancy and birth. So for this week's episode, I wanted to share a few of the tips that I think are most important for feeling knowledgeable & prepared for your labor and delivery. 

We'll cover four areas in this episode: your mindset, your environment, your support, and your preparation. 

A healthy mindset is the foundation of your labor and birth experience. In this episode, you'll learn how you can create and maintain a good mindset for labor and delivery and how you can improve the environment in your labor and delivery room. We'll also talk about who will be supporting you during your labor and delivery, how to get the best support possible, and how you can prepare for your labor and birth.

In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:

  • Why mindset is such an important aspect of your pregnancy, labor and delivery
  • Why you should focus on the things you can control and let go of things outside your influence
  • How you can create a healthy mindset for your labor and birth
  • What you can do to improve the environment of your delivery room
  • How to make sure your support (e.g. partner, doula, etc.) during your labor is well-prepared to be your advocate
  • Why it's so empowering and important to prepare for your birth with childbirth education
