Labor Is More Than Dilation

Posted on April 30, 2013 at 5:50 PM

As we close out Cesarean Awareness Month, I want to share this link to a post that I wrote about "Failing To Progress".  So often, these are the words of doom to a couple that is working towards a natural labor.  

There are other things that are going on when a woman is in labor.  The more birth stories I hear, the more convinced I am that labor is about surrender.  That concept is not measurable, nor is it graphed anywhere.

Please take a minute to revisit the post about "Failing To Progress or Naturally Aligning" before you go into labor.  You may be glad you have another point of reference for the dreaded FTP!!

I hope to bring you a CBAC story later today, maybe tomorrow.  I look forward to sharing these words from a mama as she goes through her healing process.
