Sacred Spirit of Women –
“I hear some disappointment more often than I would hope from women I work with over the way in which they birthed. And so I want to just say that everything in our life prepares us for the next step, everything is a lesson, we can choose to let it define us or we can choose to learn from it. Our babies have the birth that they must have in order for them to grow and they choose us to be part of that process because we are the best mummas for them. In the same way our birthing experience is exactly how it should be for us to grow also. We can choose to ignore but our lessons will keep being repeated until we learn. See them as a Gift. Sent with love ????????“

I totally believe this, with all three births of my children, which have made me the Mumma I am today!
With my most recent birth of Bonnie, I had planned in my head: a water birth, practiced hypnobirthing techniques, wanted immediate skin to skin,delayed cord clamping. All was going to plan until I had to have Bonnie by emergency c section (she had the cord tight round her neck 3 times).
I had also planned what type of mother I would be third time round, being experienced and much older, I thought I would be more relaxed and able to put baby down more, leave her with others while I had a bit of me and hubby time)
But I feel her birth has made me even more anxious about leaving her, that I literally cannot bear to be out of the room without her (let alone out if the house)
The birth has taught me valuable lessons….that it IS ok to cuddle my baby lots, to feed on demand, to bed share, to Babywear etc.
I’ve learnt that being so attached to my children is just the way I am as a mother (I was the same with my other two)
This has led me to doing lots of research to reassure myself and discovering responsive/attachment parenting styles are NORMAL and that I don’t need to feel that I’m doing it all wrong.
What has it lead to…..to sharing all the information that I have found with others and starting my blog.
I’m not sure if it will lead me anywhere (as that’s not why I started it) but knowing that it might help others feel NORMAL too, is a nice feeling.
