He was born on his birthday! Ha! Imagine that! His mama had her other babies in the hospital. At a quick glance, she had very straightforward births. Minimal interventions, babies all came out fine. As she claimed her power, chose out of hospital birth this time and went a week past her due date… I slowly watched her psyche unwind the births. The interventions were mild, they actually impacted her greatly and she needed to process them, because I didn’t do any of them to her, it almost felt foreign. She knew I was paying attention. She started to believe in her own body instead of the system. #midwife #naturalbirth #homebirth #thisisbirth
Conception and birth are a miracle. No matter how science explains it, how everything creates a fully functional human being is magic.
