I’m Lacey Broussard and I’m here to show you how you can have an awesome birth!
Here, I divulge the knowledge I’ve gained as a doula, midwife apprentice, biology and chemistry major, natural birther of 2, birth photographer, and all around lover and supporter of empowered birth.
I’ve found the link to having an Empowered Birth no matter what. You see, I had two empowering birth experiences and both were completely opposite – one went as planned, the other didn’t at all!
My first was born at home – and yes, it was a planned home birth. My water broke and 4.5 hours later, he was born. Everything was perfect.
My second was born naturally yet 4.5 weeks prematurely in a hospital and spent 10 days in NICU. My water broke early and he was born 36 hours later (less than 2 hours of labor).
You might think I was just born with no fear around birth or that my yoga/gymnast body was made to slide babies out quickly. But, I was very afraid of natural birth and what was about to happen to my body and my babies. I was also very afraid of how things would turn out. Both births were empowering, though, because of who I was and how I acted, not because of what happened during the births or what I even did to prepare for them.
I believe anyone can have an empowered birth regardless of how it happens.
I teach women, like you, who are scared and unsure that despite their best efforts to stay healthy, positive, and get educated about birth, they will still not end up with a satisfying birth experience because they feel they have little or no control over it.
I felt that way too. I actually believed that women had no control over their birth experience. Not until years later did I discover that what I used to believe was a complete LIE!
By letting go, allowing, and connecting with your feminine energy you do get a say in co-creating your birth experiences and I’m here to teach you how.
As a seasoned personal development junkie, I’ve learned many fun, enlightening, clarifying, and all around awesome tools to help you have an empowered birth. Join me in my Empowered Birth online childbirth class, or consider hiring me as your Lafayette LA doula.
