Leslynotes is dedicated to providing mindful childbirth education to women globally.
Since 1998, Leslynotes has provided online childbirth education to expectant moms-to-be and their partners/husbands worldwide to prepare for birth in a non-judgmental, compassionate, and accessible manner. Women have come from Africa, Brazil, China, Australia, Thailand, Spain, (and growing) as well as the USA.
Over the years the emphasis on medical interventions and the use of medications during labor has become overwhelming. It has gotten to the point where women are viewing birth as a “medical procedure” rather than the normal, natural life event it is. There are many women, particularly in the USA, who are not receiving the best information in planning for the birth or their baby through their care providers. Because of the focus on “medical birthing technology” women are becoming more disconnected with their pregnancies as a natural phenomena and losing touch with their own, innate, natural abilities to birth.
Because of this,
Leslynotes is devoted to igniting birthing abilities of women – getting them in touch with their bodies, intuition, mindset, and birthing capabilities first, BEFORE exploring medical options..
This gives women a better birthing foundation to make better decisions when it comes to working with their health care providers. When women learn about current non-medical solutions to labor pain management, what their current birthing choices are, they birth with confidence, trust their decisions as well as others, and feel satisfied about their birthing experience.
Moms-to-be are not getting the information they need to make choices and decisions about birth, nor are they learning what their options are because they are choosing NOT to take childbirth classes. (www.childbirthconnection.org)
Leslynotes hopes to raise awareness in women through its blog, and online/offline childbirth classes and events that every childbearing woman has the ability to birth and the innate knowledge to do so. The medical community is there to assist if needed, but not to replace her inerrant birthing nature or rights.
