Birth Quote #2: Faith over Fear


Faith over fear.

I’ve dealt with a lot of anxiety in my life, and this saying can go with any stressful situation I might find myself in. Childbirth can be an especially fearful time. Perhaps it’s your first baby, and you’re afraid of the unknown — Will it hurt? How much? What is labor like? When will it occur? Perhaps you’re facing a repeat cesarean. Perhaps you’re going for that VBAC you badly wish for. Perhaps you had a picture perfect birth before, however that looks in your mind, but you’re worried about the outcome of this birth. We all have our anxieties, and mother’s especially have them over childbirth.

So remember to keep your faith in the process, your faith in the eventual outcome, your faith in nature and your body, over your fear. Fear has its place, but it should not hold you back.
