I am scared of childbirth. How can Becoming Mum support me in giving birth?

Becoming Mum will support you to give birth in a manner consistent with your values.

Working your way through Becoming Mum, you will be encouraged to identify not just your ideal birth preferences, but also the values that underlie these preferences.

Our values are what really matters to us, what we really want, deep down, our lives to be about.

We cannot perfectly control how our birth experience will unfold.

When we understand the values that underlie our preferences, this enables us to be flexible and to adapt to the circumstances in which we find ourselves, while still remaining true to what’s in our own heart.

Becoming Mum also contains practical strategies for coping with physical pain and discomfort through mindfulness and connecting to your values and these strategies may be useful during labour.
