Today we are discussing the language used around pregnancy and birth.

Pregnant women are vulnerable and highly suggestive, they are listening to everyone around them, caregivers, family, friends, partners, random people on the street.

The Words we use around pregnancy can be uplifting, empowering, inspiring and can also be the polar opposite undermining, fear-inducing and we often don’t realise the impact that words can have on women, often leaving them feeling overwhelmed, fear of not being enough, feeling that she might fail within her birth.

We both feel strongly about this topic and want people surrounding any pregnancy to be mindful of the conversations we are having with women and how we can change our communication.
