This is a pose used in Yoga and it is called “The Tree Pose” or in Sanskrit “Vrksasana”.

When using this pose, a person should be like a tree, with roots holding them firmly to the earth but still able to bend and sway in harmony with the breeze or mighty gale.

A similar mindset is needed to face childbirth, where you are firmly grounded and can have a sense of inner peace and calm while being able to adjust and accept any obstacles that may arise.

By empowering yourself with knowledge you will be able to make choices easily, should situations arise, and be able to “go with the flow” of labour and birth which hardly ever goes according to plan!
