The Art of Surrender

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go”. This famous quote by Hermann Hesse speaks volumes about the strength of surrendering to birth.

The Power of Our Language in Birth

Our language can transform and empower birthing mothers or destroy their confidence in their body’s ability to birth. Language matters as a way of respecting women’s views and ensuring that they are empowered to make decisions.  As birth professionals we need to be slow to speak and quick to listen to our birthing couples. We have much to learn from them.
