CAST 062 Reframing Pain
This has got to be THE episode that I always get first time mums to listen to. No matter what type of birth they are planning, they need to understand the principles that Rhea teaches in this episode. This episode without doubt belongs in our Best Of series!! And every woman should know these principles on pain before going into their first labour.
This is light bulb going off “aha moment” kind of stuff and I am thrilled to bring this information to you.
Rhea was a joy to have on the show. So informative. So wise and such a joy to listen to.
A blessing to the birth world and a woman of such wisdom.
I am so happy to share this important message from Rhea and I love her chosen quote..

Jacky is passionate about fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and women’s health and is continually exploring the various aspects of global maternal health and in particular midwifery care and the continuum of care. Midwifery care can improve maternal outcomes because experience and research has clearly shown that pregnancy and childbirth care which has been de-medicalized and restores dignity and humanity to the process of childbirth by returning the control to the birthing woman has proven to be the safest approach.
Jacky is dedicated to educating midwives, the world needs more midwives and as Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Jacky has also published a book: A-Z for a Healthy Pregnancy and Natural Childbirth.
