Breaking Birth

Breaking Birth

My body was made to birth. 
strong hips
                  powerful muscles
                            instincts fine tuned. 

My spirit has grown to birth. 
                                   self-trusting and sure. 

My mind knows how to birth. 
            taking a backseat 
                           as primal movements
                         take the reins. 

And yet I was not designed to birth
between these hospital walls. 

Monitors mess up my flow. 
IVs cramp my free movement. 
Food and drink restriction famish my muscles.
This gown cramps my urges.  
My body is stepped upon. 
My spirit is caged. 
My mind is wrecked with the havoc of intervention. 

Who are these people? 
Each one I do not know. 
Do not trust. 
Did not invite. 

What is all THIS that breaks apart my birthing circle?
My place of peace... 

Within these walls I cannot do what I was made to do.
I cannot be who I was made to be. 

Birthing Goddess. 

I was made to birth. 
I trust my birth. 

...but not within the confines of these hospital walls.

Sending out a little holiday cheer...

☃ In years past we have loved hearing from families across the globe who have stumbled into peaceful parenting and had their lives positively impacted in one fashion or another. It has been a blessing to correspond with many of you, and we always look forward to the encouraging doorway of smiling faces when cards and pictures begin to come in at this time of the year.

If you would like to send us your card/photo this season, we would love to 'meet' your family and hear of the ways in which peaceful parenting has come into your life. ❤

We invite you to write to:
