Trust your instincts! This phrase is used often, yet so many natural instincts are masked, ignored or overridden due to societal pressure, fear or lack of support. Many people are challenged by or have lost the ability to be in touch with what their body is telling them.
Time is typically spent during pregnancy preparing mentally, physically and emotionally for the upcoming birth. Often, the natural urges and instincts that a pregnant person experiences are countered, confused or discouraged by those around them or by the culture at large.
It is important to become aware of and pay close attention to intuition and awareness around pregnancy and birth. Uncovering, acknowledging and nurturing instinctive urges and desires is a key step in taking control of navigating this time in life.
