I’ve publishedÂ two new articles in the series “My Natural Birth,” about the birth of my daughter:
- Part III: Giving NatureÂ aÂ Place in My Body
My body is a templeâ€¦ Once I realized this, realized it to the point of awe, I understood that my pregnancy and my birth were natureâ€™s domain. I just had to let go of control. Suddenly the floodgates were opened to a rush of confidence, trust and well-being.
- Part IV: My Birth Story
A good birth story is one that was written by the one who actually experienced it (the mom) and that leaves out none of the details… Here is my birth story, the story of Amieâ€™s birth, which I like to call my own: my birth as a mother. I was doing it, not any drugs, or doctors, or forceps: me and a midwife called nature.
The previous episodes are:
