When I help women create birth plans (to birth babies, new habits, patterns, or ideas), our mission is to outline how she will approach labor and birth.
The first step is to clarify her PHILOSOPHY.
Your Personal Philosophy is your theory or attitude, your guiding principle. It often determines how you will APPROACH or proceed toward in labors of life.
Our philosophy guides how we approach and cross the bridges that lead to our purpose.
For example, in Maternity…
a common Birth Philosophy is “Birth is a normal, natural process that my body was perfectly designed to experience.”
This changes the way natural minded women approach the labor and birth process.
When my philosophy is, “Life is hard.”, it is. This makes me approach each day as an exhausting experience. And I wonder, “why in the world would I have choosen to come here”. That could send me down a spiral.
However, when my philosophy is, “I was created to experience and contribute to this life”, I approach life with wonder, excitement, and possiblity. My experience feels like I’m living in color.
WHAT PHILOSOPHY (philosophies) HAVE YOU ADOPTED?
HOW IS IT (are they) AFFECTING THE WAY YOU LABOR THROUGH LIFE?
