This says it perfectly, You are the power through the pain.“this is MY why:
why would you do an unmedicated birth?
i get asked this question all the time
you could ask the same about a marathon?
why would you put yourself through that pain?
for me? i wanna see what i’m capable of.
it a challenge.
it’s a spiritual journey
it’s empowering.
i will train
i will feel like it’s too much at some parts
i will conquer mental and physical obstacles
and just when i think i can’t go any farther.
i do.”

So many great memories of watching men transforming to dads..

The Warrior Within Birth Services
Dads, we see you. Because it’s not just her birth story…it’s your birth story too.

We see the worry in your eyes, we see the strength in your arms, and we’re continually moved by the gentleness of your love. We watch you hold hands, catch babies, pray for miracles, pace halls, jump in birth tubs, apply counter-pressure, cut cords, and melt into a puddle as soon as you hold your child in your arms.

Thank you for all that you do. This is what being a man looks like…this is what fatherhood looks like. And it’s beautiful.

You hear about people telling you about that "moment". Time stands still and you fall instantly in love right? Wrong... well, sometimes... it definitely happens like that for some people, but sometimes you need to FALL in love with your baby over the course of days, weeks, or months! Just like any other person!

Now this wrinkly little baby is relying on you, you are tired and probably went through quite a journey to bring them earth-side, it is okay if you love your baby, but need time to fall IN LOVE with your baby! You are tired, you are recovering from birth, you are meeting this new person you know nothing about!

Don't sweat it, it will happen!

I wore both my children and did extended nursing. But I drew the line, I told them that we were not co-sleeping and I was not going to carry them in the sling when they got to college.

Midwives and DoulasLife at Midlife

I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.
I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.
I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; It’s just not their task
I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.
I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.
I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.
I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.
I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.
I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.
I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.
I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.
I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness.
I believe, I Believe.

I am starting a youtube series featuring answers to questions that you have about pregnancy, labor , postpartum and breastfeeding. Send me some suggestions for questions you may have that were not answered by your providers, you were not comfortable asking, or were not happy with their answers.
I have over 20 years experience in motherhood services as a doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor and RN. I trust and honor pregnancy and birth as a natural event and to keep medical technology where it belongs as a service if needed and not to overpower your strength and power.
