This is the third episode of Sarah's coaching series, and in this episode, Sarah shares her struggles with trying to memorize all the information she is learning, wherein the approach I encourage is to observe the ways birth presents all around us in the natural world and within us in different ways until it feels second nature and comes naturally during birth rather than having to recall it in the moment. This is important because for some people, it is more difficult to learn in this circular, spiraled way vs the linear and memorizing facts approach most of us are exposed to in our education. So we will work through that in the first half of this episode. Then we will cover how she is preparing for the birth cycle, being ready for breastfeeding, what she and her husband are learning about communicating together, and we discuss some aspects of nutrition and core and pelvic floor exercises to help her feel more comfortable during the third trimester of her pregnancy. 

 

Also, you will hear Sarah bring up a live stream birth we both watched, which was the birth of one of my colleagues, a fellow childbirth educator and birth doula in Canada names Alexis Christine Wild, and you can actually hear an interview I did with her about her preparation for this birth in episode #24.
