The Role Your Personality Plays in Labor
Your personality is unique and complex, shaped by your past relationships and experiences and, to some degree, your natural wiring. Your personality includes broad patterns of thinking and feeling, which affect how you respond to events in your life today. The Birth Profile Assessment is not a full-fledged personality assessment, and isn’t able to diagnose or help treat any mental health disorder. But it does contain powerful questions aimed at understanding key areas of your personality that can affect your birth. How will you respond to the mental and physical challenges of labor? These three personality scales can help you know what to expect.
The Three Personality Scales are:
Why are These Three Key Personality Traits Important?
We’ve chosen these three key personality traits to measure in the assessment because these traits can affect whether you have a positive, negative, or traumatic birth experience. Current statistics tell us that about 1 in 7 women develop postpartum depression or anxiety, and 1 in 3 women have trauma during birth. That’s a lot of women going through these complications! What factors help women avoid these outcomes?
Research on birth suggests that feeling empowered and supported during labor, adapting to changes in the labor process, and communicating well with your team, all help give women a better birthing experience and decrease risk for postpartum depression and trauma. So whether you are hoping for a great birth, or simply hope to avoid trauma or depression, we want you to know how you’re equipped in these areas.
The Assessment also Measures 4 General Aspects of Your Unique Makeup:
Birth beliefs– find out how your confidence vs. fears about labor stack up, and what to do about it!
Birth knowledge– a big heads-up about what you know, and what you have yet to learn, in order to be well equipped for decision-making and coping in labor
Place– informs you about where you might be best suited to give birth (hospital, birth center, or at home?)
Provider– sheds light on what type of medical professional might be the best fit for your prenatal and birth care (midwife or obstetrician?)
The truth is that none of these three traits are good or bad in themselves. But each trait comes with specific strengths and weaknesses that affect labor. Learning about these traits will help you envision how you are likely to experience labor. What challenges can you expect? Your feedback will enable you to harness your signature strengths to help you in labor. And, on the flip side, you’ll have the opportunity to learn specific tools to balance your areas of weakness.
