Pregnancy is a time for large transformations. Bodies change and bodies are grown. People grow physically, mentally and emotionally. It can be a very powerful time for everyone involved, but it can also be a difficult and stressful time. How does one hold onto their center during the chaotic moments of pregnancy and childbirth? How can partners and friends support their loved one’s going through the experience of pregnancy and birth? How might Feng-Shui or hypnobirthing support the process?
As a father who was able to be very involved in my wife’s pregnancy and birth, I was excited about this conversation and thrilled to be joined by special guest Bailey Gaddis, as we explored these questions and discussed some of the common beliefs around pregnancy and birth. We talked about various methods of support, and even discussed what it means to have an orgasmic birth!
