Hello and Welcome!

This issue of Birthing Blocks keeps your eye on the prize at the end of your pregnancy - holding that new baby.



* Babies Babies Babies
* Natural Pain Relief
* And Birth Tips Take the Lead...


"New Arrivals" in the Birth Diaries
One of the most effective ways to empower yourself about your impending birth is to read the natural birth stories of other mothers. They help suppress all the negative influences around you and dispel any lingering self doubt you may have.

There is a new set of sextuplets in the Birth Diaries, five of the stories so generously submitted by Lisa, a natural birth mother soon-to-be 6 times over and the unassisted birth story of Arcadia.

If these stories don't empower you, I don't know what will!

Natural Pain Relief

I've said it before and I'll say it again...choosing a natural birth does not mean choosing a painful one. To that end, be sure to check out the Natural Pain Relief strategies. They are time-honored methods to eliminate or greatly reduce any discomfort in labor without the side effects or risks of medications.

Remember, these comfort measures work best when a mother is in optimal birthing positions and mentally and physically relaxed.
