61. 3 Mistakes of Homebirth Preparation
Show Notes

After over a decade of supporting families in homebirth, I can clearly say three of the most common mistakes I see made are: 

  1. Thinking that gathering information is the first step
  2. Foregoing discernment when gathering information
  3. Deferring to experts or authorities

And in the current birth culture we are used to, you may not even realize how much you might be doing these three things!

 But there are signs to recognize if or when you are making these mistakes (things like reading too many books, looking to social media for answers, binging birth stories, and more).  

 And once you start down that path, trying to get all the information, then trying to process it and integrate it, and then trying to embody it before your birth arrives, well, let's just say, if you have missed the foundational steps, then you risk driving yourself into overwhelm in the final weeks of  your pregnancy, just hoping everything will go ok. 

But there's still time and it begins by listening to this week's episode where you will learn the key signs and phrases homebirth families say that are a tip off to these mistakes.
