Dismantle Learned Compliance: Level Up Your Prenatal Meetings to Support Birth Physiology

Birth is an internally-occurring, non-linear, physiological process, yet the current birth language, model, and culture–with an emphasis on measuring, delineating, and rigorous observation–ignore these facts.

Let’s explore a new, non-antagonistic, educational model for prenatal meetings that provides a framework strong enough to stand up to the existing medical model.
By anchoring this model in physiology, we can help dismantle learned compliance while promoting self-efficacy and birth ownership for our clients. We’ll also discuss what can be done during pivotal moments where circumstances are primed to derail physiology, such as the pushing stage.
