Welcome to this Journey to Birth Coaching Call!This is the second half of a long follow-up call we had to process Starre's birth experience, so if you haven't listened to part 1, I recommend you do that first so you can hear her birth story to understand the context of the conversation we are having. In this half we are getting more into depth about why Starre is feeling the emotions she feels about her birth experience as well as how her expectations showed up in her birth and how she is adjusting to life as a mom of a 2-year old and a newborn. Before we hear her story, I just want to share the amount of admiration I hold for Starre and her husband as they prepared for this birth. Starre did exactly what I hope all of my students do as they go through this style of education, she really went on a journey of self-exploration and self-understanding that is changing the way she lives and interacts with her world. This is not easy work, and not everyone takes the material that is available here to this level, which means not everyone will have the result Starre had, but for those who are ready, who want to experience the power of giving birth, who want to experience the transformation of becoming a mother, of becoming powerful, and experience that is so profound that it might take months to process everything that happened, it is here, waiting for you, I am here waiting for you, and our community is here to welcome you.  I start with all of this because Starre's birth is truly incredible, so much so that she has a lot to process, a lot of emotions and perspectives that she didn’t expect, and this is something that can happen when a birth is so undramatic, as Starre says, so ordinary, when there are no heroics, only the birthing heroine. We ended up talking for nearly 3 hours in processing her birth, and I struggled with how to break this up for the podcast, or whether to break it up for the podcast. So ultimately, what I decided was to give you choice. Everything about reproduction, birth and life is about making choices, and I wanted to leave the choice in your hands. So, I broke this episode into 2 parts, but I am releasing them both on the same day, so if you prefer to break it into two separate listening experiences, it will be easy for you, but if you prefer to binge the whole 2 hours at once, you have that option available to you as well.  ___________Further info & opportunities:Learn about the childbirth preparation method Starre used to prepare for her birth by clicking here.Download your copy of the assessment our students and podcast guests use by clicking here.Are you an expectant parent who would like to experience a coaching session on the Journey to Birth podcast?
