What Does it Mean to Birth Bravely?
To birth bravely means that despite being scared, you persist. Being brave is doing something outside of your comfort zone. Something may be scary, but you still do it. You show your true strength even in the face of fear or change. You are a survivor. You overcome. You are unapologetic about who you are and what you want! Resiliency is your song.
You have a passion for life. You are brave enough to look deep within, see yourself, and know yourself. You face what the universe brings your way. Inhibitions do not hold you back. You take courage when surrounded by tribulations. You listen to your gut and do what you intuitively know is right for you. You make your own choices. You live your true self, which is the bravest thing of all.
You follow your heart. You may have doubts, but you hold tight to your faith in your vision. You are willing to understand your risks, manage them and ultimately accept them. You are always authentic, true to yourself. You take on challenges with a strong head and a strong heart. You courageously move towards your desires, making conscious choices along the way.
Birthing Bravely is not about having a specific type of birth, more or fewer interventions or doing things 'right'. It's about writing your own story and developing a love for that story as it unfolds. You are a brave birthing mom and your path is perfect.
