Many moms wonder is birth really that painful…is it as bad as they say it is? Well, the answer isn’t an easy yes or no answer. Birth is different for every mom.

The truth is that some moms have births that leave them feeling euphoric.

In fact, in my course Birth Secrets, I teach about how your own body creates hormones during birth that are 18-30% more powerful at relieving pain than morphine. However, there is a problem, because many women have too much stress and tension in their body during birth to experience this.

That being said you should be aware that positive births don’t always just happen on their own. In fact, one study found that 18% of mothers had elevated levels of posttraumatic stress symptoms after giving birth. Half of these women were diagnosed with PTSD because of their birth experience. Yes, traumatic births happened even when mothers had epidurals and the most modern science helping them.

Whether a woman gives birth at home naturally, or at the hospital with an epidural, there is always going to be some level of pain involved. It is natural to feel at some points that you can’t do it.

However, developing the right mindset about birth, and preparing for childbirth can make a big difference.

But it doesn’t mean that birth on it’s own is scary.

I was once at a Tony Robbins Event where Tony claimed fear doesn’t really exist.

I know it sounds crazy, but let me explain.

He went on to say that what we call fear is usually just the awareness we have of a vulnerability that leaves us at risk for danger or pain.

And birth is a vulnerable time. If you feel afraid of giving birth, make sure to check out these childbirth courses or pregnancy books. It may be that knowledge can help you gain the confidence and skills you need to have a positive experience.
