Why Telling Your Birth Story Can Help In Your Parenting

This week Elle and Abigail are telling their birth stories…

Now, why would they want to do that?

Birth can engulf us with emotions that linger way beyond the time our children are babies, but we rarely have an opportunity to talk about the feelings we had.

What we felt then, how it shaped up to our friends’ experiences or our own expectations, can often impact how we find parenting, and even how we relate to our children.
