Everyone has goals. I have goals. You have goals. Ask any young girl and chances are they have the goal of getting married and having a family from a very young age. Others may be driven to be on the High School team or to be successful business people.
A goal is the desired outcome of result of action. A healthy vaginal birth. You can focus on it and drive yourself to complete it. With a goal when it is completed it is over, finished, and dismissed. You will either have to create another new goal or return to our old practices.
Reaching a goal does not happen overnight. It requires an intention, a strategy to accomplish the goal, and building the habits that are part of the strategy. Without a strategy and its corresponding habits, you cannot reach your goal.
To have a healthy birth, you need to build the habits that will get you to your goal.
