What if your fear came true?
Do you have a plan B? Research debates whether having a plan B sabotages your plan A. For over 10 years I’ve observed that expecting mothers who have a reputation of being very organized, timely, and driven tend to relax best when they feel they have thoroughly researched all of the main possibilities their path can take. They are better able to surrender to the normal process of labor when they have empowered themselves with the appropriate knowledge.
Discover peace in knowing how to mentally and emotionally care for yourself in the event plans change or the immediate path seems to be rocky. There is a feeling of freedom in having a response that states, “well if this happens then I’ll just…”
Create a plan stating how you will handle the situation if the course changes. You may never have to use it.
