Monday Mantra: I Am Calm

I would use these words when I started to feel things move out of control in our labor.  Being a very list-oriented, can-do type of person, it takes me a long time to surrender to the power and unpredictability of birth. 

When I finally do, I have to convince myself that I am not broken because it takes me much longer than other women to birth (it’s a vicious cycle!).  Instead of holding back the intensity, I tell myself that in order to birth, I have to welcome the power of the contractions and allow them to take over my body.  I see it as a release of the conscious (head: this is labor and I can do it) to the acceptance of the primal (heart: this is much bigger than I am and it is infinite).

I do not like relinquishing control.  Reminding myself that I can control my calmness in face of the power, and I can control how well I relax, helps me to finally give in and completely surrender to the labor so I can finally meet our Sweet Pea.  Instead of focusing on the intensity, I focus instead of how I manage that intensity.  I remember to breathe in calm and exhale the building tension.  I hear Coach Bruss telling me that I am doing well, and he reminds me to stay loose, limp and relaxed.

So that is how maintain clarity through the increasing intensity.  I have confidence in my coach, our baby, our birth team, and myself.  I feel that I am calm and relaxed.  I can do this.

Do the words calm & relaxed reassure you? Which words help you?
