Since 1998, Leslynotes has been devoted to providing online chilebirth education globally. It’s been a wonderful resource for expectant moms and dads. Leslynotes will continue to provide this information, but it’s also going to stsart talking about being bold – not only in childbirth, but bold in life.
Birth Bold, Live Bold is Leslynotes new message.
Through the years as a childbirth educator, I have witnessed a change in attitude towards childbirth in general. Expectant couples are turning to the internet for information – not a bad idea. I LOVE the internet.
But what I have seen is a thirst for instant gratification. In my classes I get feedback comments like:
“This could have been taught in four hours”, really? Or, “This class was too long”, really?
There seems to be a disconnect with the perception of time because of all the instant access to information that we have forgotten we are human beings first. As humans, there’s a whole different way of functioning. It takes time to physically develop a baby and it takes time to physically birth a new human being. Neither of which can be, rarely, done in four hours.
Living life isn’t done in four hours …..
Aside from instant gratification is the presence of incredible stress in our lives. Stress, unproductive thinking, preocupaction with worry, are for the most part self induced. With all the negativity in the world, and that surrounding childbirth, one has to STOP listening to the noise.
Birth Bold, Live Bold is all about taking control of your life and how you choose to think about it any given moment – regardless of the situation.
Birth Bold, Live Bold is also about celebrating you and your incredible abilities to birth a baby, to live a life dictated by you, not by others, and championing your success.
Join me in this new direction.
If you’re willing to keep an open mind and recognized that planning for the birth of your baby is just one aspect of who you are, and what you experience will flow into everyother part of your life, then Leslynotes will be a wonderful resource for you.
For strength, for empowerment, for self-discovery….
Things will unfold in time .. not in four hours
Birth bold, live bold,
