Induction & childbirth: 10 top tips: Beth Ryan from Birth with Beth

For pregnant women, the idea of induction is one that might sound a little daunting and scary.  My guest today is here to shed some light on induction and how it can still be a natural and beautiful experience, with a little extra help to get things moving along. Birth with Beth shares ways which might help to induce labour naturally.  

My lovely guest today is Beth Ryan from Birth with Beth.  She is a registered midwife who provides a digital childbirth education service offering online classes to expectant mothers, all with the aim of helping women make informed choices regarding pregnancy, labour and the postpartum experience.

In this episode, Beth shares 5 evidence based strategies that you can try at home to help induce labour naturally, including a delicious sweet treat and some fun in the bedroom.  She also shares 5 great ways to help you set up your birth space in the hospital during medical induction so that you can maintain a positive and calm environment throughout your birth.  We talk about the importance of patience, discuss relaxation techniques and practical tips for creating the atmosphere your body needs during labour.   

Babies will arrive when they’re ready but there are some things we can do to help things move along.  If you’re waiting to meet your baby soon, this episode is for you.
