I get it. Not EVERYONE is going to want to have a SoundBirth! We are ALL different. Different thoughts, desires, experiences, partners. Plus it takes courage to do something different! Not many people (yet) have taken a crystal singing bowl into a birthing suite and had their husband play it for hours and hours... (yes this has actually happened in several Perth hospitals so far!). Trying to get your husband to rub your back a certain way and say the "right" things during labour is hard enough than trying to get them to play a crystal singing bowl in the hospital room! No one wants to look like a crazy person right?!?
So here is a list so that you can see for yourself if you are a SoundBirth-type person or not!
SoundBirth is not for:
There you go! If you don't feel drawn by your heart strings to something then don't do it I always say! But if something is making you feel curious at first and then overcome with joy... then going for it is probably the way to go!
Whatever you choose make sure it is a choice YOU have made from YOUR heart...you never know...it could even be your baby whispering to you...so listen carefully!
