This week we share with you an awesome birth story from TV Presenter and NRL player, Zoe and Benji Marshall.
Zoe Marshall says that even though she was induced, which was her worst case scenario, ‘I still had an incredibly beautiful birth!’
Medical Induction is a rough ride. The discomfort of contractions is so much more intense than during a natural labour because synthetic oxytocin does not cross the blood brain barrier, informing your brain to create endorphins as happens during a normal labour.
I love how Zoe and Benji Marshall shed light on the power of the mind, the power of preparation and the importance of re-framing as you go through birth.
They also highlight the value of a doula and how your team can guide and support you through the wildest of storms.
Birth is about breaking boundaries. It is about feeling proud of our achievements and celebrating the lessons we learn.
