The Simple Truth

Yoga is based on a simple truth…when a person misunderstands reality they suffer. When reality is understood the response to suffer is one of your own making. You will still feel both pleasure and pain.

 During Labor you will cross from pain to suffering if you become exhausted, your confidence is shaken or your way of coping experiences frequent disturbances, rigid hospital rules, demoralizing remarks, a lack of emotional support or clinical complications. SO….

If you understand why contractions hurt, you are continually nurtured and supported by supportive people/staff in a peaceful safe environment, free to move around to find greater comfort and you know ways to respond to contractions then fear gives way to mastery, confidence and a sense of well-being. Then a woman can cope with Labor, she does not suffer. (Penny Simpkin Birth Partner)

Yoga teaches that if one commits to its path then it will mean the end of your suffering. Birth would like you to take careful note of that simple truth.

Labor pain is a side-effect of a normal bodily function, not a sign of damage, injury…if you truly understand this then fear cannot increase your pain. Unexplained mysterious pain is frightening, once  you know the reason for the pain you immediately feel better.

Yoga teaches that mental modifications (the mind stuff) are restrained through practice and non-attachment to the cause of the modifications.

If you apply right knowledge then perhaps you will come to realize that your fears have nothing to do with Birth, instead they stemmed from what you believed about Birth. If your thoughts are filled with wrong knowledge then believing those thoughts will cause you to suffer.

When you stop believing those thoughts you stop suffering and that is true for everyone, not just pregnant women.

Knowledge replaced my fear of pain and my suffering diminished.

Freedom from suffering is as simple as that.
