Last year this time I was giving birth to my son. My experience was more positive than anything; my body did a fantastic job delivering the baby. However the journey wasn’t easy.
I had a slow progress long labor. In the delivery room there was a big beautiful picture of a mother holds her newborn. That picture became my focal point during delivery.
Despite long hours of pain, short staffed night, and keeping being moved to different rooms. At the end I was happy I was sent back to settle in room 14 where there was that big beautiful picture of a mother holds her newborn.
It helped me staying positive. I wanted to hold my baby just like the woman in that picture. So I focused on the picture during delivery.
It was as effective as having gas and air (laughing gass), birth partner, excellent midwife. I encourage and invite you to use positive imagery.
So I painted the same picture in my own expression
