You have a choice

I saw a post on Instagram the other day, shared by Milli Hill from her next book. It was about a woman in labour being pressurised into having a vaginal examination, when it was the last thing she wanted.

It really struck a cord with so many women, who shared their stories in the comments.

I sat reading them in tears…it shouldn’t be happening

Being left with that feeling can get passed down for generations, disempowering all of the girls and women that follow…this is how 💕

**YOU HAVE A CHOICE** ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When you have a difficult or traumatic pregnancy or birth experience, you can be left feeling like your choices were taken away

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It was not as you wanted…you tell yourself that it’s over and your Little One is here and safe, but the feeling around the birth stays

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In that moment, in that experience, a belief was created and took root in the cells of your body

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The same happened for your Little One ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Whatever you thought, however you felt got stuck

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The same happened for your Little One ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Beliefs are then created…

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Birth isn’t safe

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Birth is traumatic

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This world isn’t safe

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Separation isn’t safe

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Mum is the only safe space

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Change is scary

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Bad things happen when things change

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Little Ones aren’t safe in anyone else’s hands

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Loss is inevitable ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

These beliefs don’t go away by themselves, they stay programmed into your cells…and they get passed down through the generations ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I want to acknowledge you…what you went through ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I want to let you know that how you (and your Little One) feel is important ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I want you to know that I understand how it feels to have your choices taken away, to feel disempowered and violated

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I also want you to know that, right now you have a choice

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You have a choice whether to leave that trauma, those emotions and those beliefs locked in the cells of your body, ready to pass down through the generations ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You have a choice whether to leave that trauma, those emotions and those beliefs locked in the cells of your Little One’s body, ready to pass down even further

OR ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You can make the choice to heal, process and release the trauma, let go of the difficult emotions and reprogramme the beliefs…for you AND your Little One ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You get to choose whether the trauma stops here, or whether it gets passed on to your grandchildren and your great grandchildren ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The generations before us didn’t know this…it’s why we carry so much of their sh!t

What do you choose?

Get in touch to arrange a free Birth Exploration Call…or if you already know what you choose, you can pre book your place on Birth Healing Together, starting in October.
