I attended a wonderful birth last evening and I am still reaping the benefits and blessings of the experience. Birth is such a miracle - normal, natural birth is a gift and right for every woman. What joy to watch the 'dance of hormones' over the course of a labor. To know on one hand that we have this curse of labor pain in our lives, but on the other hand to know that we have these amazing bodies that know exactly what to do and how to do it. I highly recommend reading "Ecstatic Birth," by Sarah Buckley - a fabulous walk through the hormonal blueprint of labor. Check it out on www.mothering.com in their article section!
Enjoy these lazy days of summer - even when they're not so lazy... they just don't last!
