Pregnancy and childbirth can bring its own special type of worry – so much of what is to come is unknown. In fact, in many ways, preparing for birth is a lot like preparing for motherhood: a daily practice of surrendering the need to know, and trusting your instincts.
But pregnancy and birth in the time of isolation, lockdown and infection brings a whole new level of unknown.
In this special CALMCAST episode, I speak with Australia's leading birth educator, Nadine Richardson, from SheBirths.
In this episode, we speak about what you can do to prepare, no matter what's going on in the world, how to talk to your partner and birthing team, and how to trust yourself as a capable mama-to-be.
