Here's my second give away in the history of my blog:)

On my blogs facebook page I have a discussion at this link.

Read the link given at that page, then post here or on under the discussions tab on facebook about an experience you have had working with someone during labor and birth that has incorporated spirituality in some way. I would also love to hear how this enhanced the experience for either you or the mother. For those who don't work with other women during this time, share an experience with your own birth or someone you know. I'll do a random drawing sometime next month for the book the Baby Catcher by Peggy Vincent. (And I'll just warn is new, but the cover got a slight bent in it:)).

Birth is a Journey: Does it have to be life changing?

  • One woman might have to climb on an overfilled boat, risking her life and nearly dying as she escapes over the ocean to come to this land. This experience could certainly be life altering. It may very well color the rest of her life, positively or negatively. (I overcame this amazing struggle and here I am triumphant! OR Holy crap, that was SO hard I don’t know if I can go on! By the way, neither response is “right”. No one would judge the woman with the 2nd response.)
  • One woman may buy an airplane ticket, sit on a comfortable 747 and fly to America with a nice smooth flight and landing. She is happy to be in America. Those welcoming her are glad she is here safe and sound. She may only travel by plane 2-4 times in her life, so it is pretty memorable. But the journey itself probably wouldn’t be life changing; it would simply be a journey.
  • One woman may learn to fly an ultra-light plane to lead a flock of geese into America teaching them to migrate. This experience could certainly be empowering and life altering.
