“Women, don’t ever apologize for your behavior or choices during birth. When you OWN your experience and take pride in your journey, you help other women do the same thing. No matter how you did it, you just brought a human being into the world! The world should be kneeling at your feet.” – Lauralyn Curtis
I began watching an absurd amount of birth videos after I heard a friend of mine say she laughed out not one, but two babies. Wow! Can birth really be like that? I thought.
I love these videos, not because they create a bar to judge ourselves by, but because they show how differently and beautifully birth happens for each of us.
Watching videos, I learned how I wanted to be supported, I became able to communicate and SHOW my husband what would mean the most to me. I was able to vision a birth entirely and completely different than my first birth. A whole world of possibility was opened up to me.
Enjoy opening yourself up to possibility and immersing yourself in the wonder of each of these beautiful, unique stories.
