A certified professional is available here in the corner chatbox 24-7 for on call support, guidance, reassurance and education. You are NEVER alone, no matter what.
You have 50 things on your to-do list & you set self expectations really high in order to feel fully prepared for baby to arrive based on what you assume is top priority of motherhoods responsibility: These expectations often look like having the nursery ready, having a reading library filled, having all of the newborn clothing washed and folded, getting in that last little vacation, paying off bills, finishing house work or personal projects, getting a new car or detailing the old car, unpacking from a move, quickly healing all of your past life and childhood trauma, having the house perfect for visitors to come see the baby and general things that are not going to be a source of support during labor, birth, postpartum or caring for a newborn while healing mentally, physically and emotionally.
These mental preparations can evolve into physical & emotional blocks when it hinders us from properly preparing for the support we need and deserve on the forefront while everything else in life takes a back seat on the backburner when birth happens.
