Build Habits for Birth

Why You Need to Build Habits for Birth, Not Goals

Everyone has goals. I have goals. You have goals. Ask any young girl and chances are they have the goal of getting married and having a family from a very young age.  Others may be driven to be on the High School team or to be successful business people.

A goal is the desired outcome of result of action. A healthy vaginal birth. You can focus on it and drive yourself to complete it. With a goal when it is completed it is over, finished, and dismissed.  You will either have to create another new goal or return to our old practices.

Reaching a goal does not happen overnight.  It requires an intention, a strategy to accomplish the goal, and building the habits that are part of the strategy. Without a strategy and its corresponding habits, you cannot reach your goal.

To have a healthy birth, you need to build the habits that will get you to your goal.

Good Habits:

  • Exercise for 1 hour, 3 times a week or loose 20 pounds in 4 months
  • Practice good body posture & using a standing desk or stand for 6 hours a day
  • Read 30 minutes a day or read 5 books this year
  • Have family dinner nightly or schedule 7 free hours a weekend for the family
