When Bad Weather Moves In On Your Home Birth
What would you do if you lost power during immobilizing weather? More than that… What would you do if you are planning to have a home birth and severe weather approaches? Well let’s discuss how to Birth Like A Boss and beat the bad weather blues…
First off, take a deep breath. Get focused and realize that the baby is going to be born when he or she is ready. The baby is not prejudice to when and where… but, sometimes we are. So when we identify with the power of childbirth, we can take control over the uncontrollable, and focus on the goal to have a successful birth outcome that is clothed with the confidence of momma magic.
Where Is My Midwife?
When the weather has caused roads to close and the baby calls to your attention that he/she is ready to arrive, you need to call on your inner midwife. First, know that plenty of women have given birth in more organic environments. Second, be mindful that electrical power has nothing on the power of a birthing mother and the coming of her baby. Third, trust that the spirit of motherhood is with you and your approaching baby.
Moms should have their birth kits ordered no later than 28 weeks when planning a homebirth, this way you can be assured that you have the basics covered. Along with making sure that you have access to your midwife even if it is over the phone. Always have your cell phone battery charged and accessible. Also have your emergency plan together. This is a plus. Especially if you have to freestyle the birth. Meaning that you are not assisted by the midwife or birth companion you chose. Having these few simple things in order can alleviate common fears and empower any mom through the magical journey into motherhood.
