Connect With Other Moms
While listening to stories in books and documentaries is powerful, connecting with moms who have given birth naturally can be an even greater boost to morale. I'm always inspired when I get to listen to the birth story of someone I know because it gives me the opportunity to ask questions and really understand what she went through.

Moreover, connecting with women we know creates a powerful feeling of support. Asking friends or family to host a Blessingway in your honor is another way to encourage the women in your life to open up about their own births and help you feel empowered for the big day.
