Overcoming Birth Obstacles

Guys, it’s become clear to me in the last few months that I need to tell you something IMPORTANT. In fact, I’m doing you a SERIOUS disservice by not sharing this with you already.

As you know, I always hate to dwell on the negative and WAY prefer a more uplifting, positive, empowering conversation. But I believe it’s empowering for you to know the good, bad, and the ugly so you’re thoroughly equipped when the time comes to achieve your natural birth.

So for the next four days, I’m giving you a free sneak peek into new LYL content called “Overcoming Birth Obstacles”. That’s right, I’m sharing some of the most common obstacles women tend to trip over that lands them in the Labour Funnel.

Obstacle #1

The first obstacle is Gestational Diabetes. This may not seem like an obstacle to natural birth, but if you’re diagnosed with GD it totally can be used as an excuse to shuffle you into the funnel unnecessarily.

Here’s a clip where I’m discussing GD, but in the full 5-minute video (found in the Love Your Labour Members Area) I give you four big steps you can take to prevent and manage this obstacle so it doesn’t hurt your chances of achieving your dream birth.

Obstacle #2

The second obstacle is Baby Malposition. This one is near and dear to my heart because my first birth ended in c-section because of malposition.

But I was diagnosed breech in labour, not before. And we did attempt a vaginal breech delivery. I felt satisfied that I exhausted my options in my birth. If your baby is not head down, just know there are options for you before scheduled cesarean...I outline FIVE options in this obstacle.

The full video is a solid 6 minutes about avoiding the Baby Malposition obstacle and can be found inside the LYL program.

Obstacle #3

The third obstacle is Going Overdue.

There’s so many issues with due dates! They can be inaccurate. They’re an estimate. They increase anxiety. They make doctors crazy. And impatient. And intervention happy!

A due date is SUCH an easy excuse to pressure you into induction or scheduled c-section (especially because the vast majority of first time moms will go past their EDD) but don’t do it!

The full video is a solid 5 minutes about avoiding the Overdue obstacle and can be found inside the LYL program. Want in? Boxing Week Sale is on until TOMORROW.

Obstacle #4

The fourth obstacle is Big Baby.

This one hurts my heart. I’ve seen women TOTALLY tricked...duped...fooled...manipulated by their doctors. Women have lost their dream births (completely unnecessarily!) because of this obstacle. I’ve seen babies born severely underweight because of this practice. It’s manipulation and it’s scary. But the worst part is there’s one BIG HUGE secret you need to know about this obstacle, which I outline in detail in the full video.

Below is just a snippet, but the full video is 5 minutes full of avoiding the “Big Baby” obstacle and can be found inside the LYL program.
