Every expectant mother or father-to-be wants a POSITIVE BIRTH. Unfortunately there has become such a division in the childbirth conversation that only one type of birth is considered to be positive ... natural home birth. Yeeks ... a hospital birth can't been seen of as a positive much less an elective surgical birth.
Good heavens what are we doing to our society when so many families are left out of truly feeling their baby's birth is honored, respected and valued? This has to stop.
The hundreds of Birthing Better Pink Kit families who developed The Pink Kit skills in the early 1970s all wanted a positive birth and they all achieved that. This is not rocket science.
How did all these families and tens of thousands afterwards do the same thing? Simple. They learned skills to prepare their pregnant body to become a birthing body. This is fun to do, enjoyable, part of becoming a mother and father, a commitment to our baby and a good idea.
Then these families learned, practiced and USED their birth and coaching skills to work through their baby's birth no matter how that birth unfolded. That's right. To achieve a positive birth all it takes is to use skills to work through your baby's birth journey. Who knows what will happen to or around you during the birth but with skills you can always achieve a positive birth because you are a skilled birthing mother and coaching dad.
