The Labor Fear Factor
Sarah McMoyler, RN posted:
Oprah recently interviewed a blind man who has scaled some of the tallest peaks in the world. She asked him what the key to his success was, he responded with: Putting fear aside and letting go of failure. He went on to say that he trusted his guides, accepted support, and surrounded himself with people who believed he could do it.

You see the analogy, right? He could not control the peaks or the weather or potential injury…he had a goal and he went for it; just like labor.

The idea of having to be in labor alone is daunting, scary and feels impossible. Set your labor up for success: a medical team to guide you, and someone who will love you unconditionally and reassure you every step of the way. This is how to achieve your goal of getting a healthy baby into your arms and look back on the experience with a sense of triumph!
