At my first birth, neither I nor my birth team recognized the physiological imbalance and hypervigilant state of my nervous system, when I was dilated at a 5 and experienced strong urges to push, leading to an emergency C-section. I spent the second pregnancy actively balancing my body and nervous system, determined to have a VBAC. I did! And I felt so empowered. I’ve been in movement work for 20 years. I would love to be body nerds together and create the best birth prep experience for you.
