Healing Your Birth Story | Anne Margolis
What makes you who you are?
It is a mixture of your soul essence, your spirit – your physical, mental and emotional self – along with all of the life experiences that make up your years. This goes all of the way back to the time in your Mother’s womb and your birth.
This week, I had Anne Margolis, a holistic certified nurse midwife, Clarity Breathwork practitioner, and yoga teacher on the show to talk about healing your birth story. This is a fascinating topic that is usually not thought of when we talk about doing the inner work and yet, it is our first experience of life and a very important aspect of self. The statistics about women’s birth experiences are surprising and this is an important conversation we need to be having more often while reflecting on both the stories of our own births and for Mothers, the stories of their child’s or children’s birth(s).
“1/3 of women still today describe their birth as traumatic and that is a lot of women. And 9% of new mothers actually have the symptoms of post traumatic stress, which is a totally normal reaction to some real or perceived very traumatic, scary or bad experience.” – Anne Margolis, CNM, LM, NP, MSN, BSN, RNC
With awareness and education these statistics can change. We must be open to knowing ourselves in deeper ways and be empowered to choose our experience. I don’t think there is any “right way” to birth a baby. It is only with careful consideration, research and asking within that each individual is empowered to choose their own experience.
During this podcast episode, Anne shares some incredible tools for healing your birth story.
Last week’s take action items was a powerful one! Did you get a chance to write down any belief, anything or anyone that is holding you back? Oh boy! This is huge. We must look at anything in the way to make sure there is a clear path ahead. Check out last week’s episode to find out more!
