As I have been helping more women in labor, I have been formulating thoughts on stages of labor that have to do with how a woman emotionally deals with labor. I think so often we focus on how far dilated someone is, that we forget to see how this experience is shaping a mom. I see a lot of transformation happening at this time that could have the potentional to be very beneficial to the mom or very truamatic years down the road. I will be posting these as I work through them and possibly revising them as I work with more women in birth. I would love to hear anyone elses thoughts on this also.
