Birthing From Within

One of the online newsletters I really enjoy are the thoughtful articles offered from Birthing From Within.  August's newsletter had an article called "Fantasy, Control, and the 'Heart of Birthing From Within'".

Here's a tidbit from the very end:
"Compassion for ourselves and for other mothers, flexibility in our plans, and awareness of our own motivations, beliefs, fears, and inner voices are some ways to work with our desire for control in birth. This is the heart of 'birthing from within.'”
This rings very true for me - not just in birth, but in mothering as well. 

I'm very interested in checking out Pam England's new book, Labyrinth of Birth:  Creating a Map, Meditations, and Rituals for Your Childbearing Year.  Has anyone else read it or seen any reviews?

If you're interested in creating birth art, working through motivations, beliefs and fears to prepare for your upcoming birth, definitely get in touch with me!
