From the moment you find out you’re pregnant people do everything they can to gear you up for labor and birth. Some people come at you with the raw and scary birth stories and all that really does is scare you and put fear in your brain that your body can’t do this. Which is a total lie. Your body is incredible and built to do this. Sometimes the unknown is scarier than tuning into your body and allowing it do do the work.  While there are moments where things might not go as planned and there are times where it can be scary But, it’s important to remember we are built for this and  humans have been birthing babies since the beginning of time, obvi.

It’s important to show that labor and birth doesn’t have to be scary, that your body is incredible, birth is powerful, and people who have birthed humans and choose to share these raw birth photos combat all that fear and show birth for the amazing thing it really is.
