Language Matters

Language Matters

Below you can see a list of words that women negatively associate with labour and birth. You may well have some more of your own. If you hover over the words, you’ll see an explanation as to why these words can affect your feelings towards birth.  You can also see some small replacement words you could use or ask to be used in your labour.

Sometimes, not having a preconceived idea or feeling about a word, can help us feel more positive. This is because our brain does not subconsciously make a connection.
