[TRANSCRIPT OF ANSWER]
Afraid of Giving Birth?
“Your birth should not be a traumatic experience for you. It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to be afraid of going into it. You can be empowered. Becoming educated, doing your research, and getting prepared for your labor are the top three ways so you don’t have to be afraid. You can actually go into your birth and your labor experience excited to have your baby and excited for what the birth might bring to you and your family.”
Transition to Parenthood
“It’s a period of change and transition, and it can be a wonderful, awesome experience. It doesn’t have to be terrifying. And it’s really important that you take it seriously so that you can have a great experience. So that you can look back on that experience and you can share that with your baby and tell them, share that with your child as they grow, “I remember the day you were born and it was an awesome, awesome, amazing experience and one that I will never forget.””
