“I have friends who say I could never do what you did. And I’m like: no that’s not true. I’m not special or extra strong. I would never say I have a high pain tolerance or anything like that. It’s deciding that you want that and doing things that help you prepare. I truly believe that pain fear cycle and so if you can get your head around that, it changes everything. That’s not to say that everyone should want a birth like this. But if it’s something that you do want? Then go for it, and go for it all the way.“
