my favorite work of art
My children are in fact my favorite things I have created... by far. Though they have their own strong personalities and often times in a day I am challenged by them and their intense independence, or lack there of, they still remain my most prized art I have yet to create. And here I am only about 6 weeks left till I welcome #3. Another sweet boy will be among us.
We are preparing for a lovely home birth. Which will have allowed me experience with many ways of birthing. Baby #1 was born in the hospital, I was induced, had my water broke and still had a drug free labor that I can say was as pleasant as can be. Baby #2 was born at the birth center, I showed up 5cm dilated and he was born 1.5 hours later, rather quick, of course intense, but so beautiful. And now baby #3 will be born at home, in the same room where he was made he will be introduced to this world, surrounded by loved ones eagerly anticipating seeing his sweet face for the very first time.
I love childbirth! There is something so magical about witnessing your body conquer this great task of nature and how it in fact knows exactly what to do to get the job done. You just need to truly trust in the power of your body and let it do its work. Believe in yourself and empower your body with positive thoughts of opening and letting go in surrender to its divinity. Witness the magic happen then be in blissful awe and true joy as you hold your brand new tiny human creation. Stunning!
