Katie is back in the booth this week with so much wisdom and grace to share on this topic that is so close to her heart. We talk about how the Language of Failure permeates the Birth Space and inherently undermines our collective aspirations for better experiences for everybody. We speak frankly about the complexity of the topic, the challenges of understanding all perspectives in and on childbirth in our culture, and the importance of providing encouragement, education, and empowerment into all our conversations around pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. Specific topics covered include:

- Importance of mindfullness of our language

- Speaking up & taking ownership

- Name to reframe

- Navigating the invisible system of our culture

- Importance for post-partum story-telling for connection, healing, and closure

- The 4 Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz - https://www.miguelruiz.com

- Ownership vs Overwhelm
