I am wanting to compile some essays on birth and the meaning behind birth, so I am offering a contest. The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to The Kura Door, a holistic Japanese Spa in SLC Utah. Submit an essay, any length, with these ideas in mind: 1)How has birth changed your perspective on life in a positive way? 2) How has overcoming the difficulties and trials in birth helped you to grow in a positive way? 3)How has birth provided meaning to your life as a woman and a mother?
Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with birth essay in the title. All submissions become my property and will be used in conjunction with my blog at www.thebeginningofmotherhood.blogspot.com.
The deadline is Aug. 15, 2009. Also, just as a heads up, I will probably be doing this periodically if different areas also (ie media, photography etc. )
