“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through Birth.” –Marcie Macari
2 years ago i encountered the finale of my pregnant journey. I came to the end and it was time to bare down and face labor. For me, natural labor has become a deeply sacred event in which i seek as a victory to claim. I didn’t desire glory or prize for it….but rather it was a part of me that was important to endure as a mother. A pain not to be confused with suffering but a transforming moment worthy to experience.
