I hope this is read by many women pregnant for the first time or who didn't have the childbirth experience they wanted. It's so important to educate yourself, not just on your pregnancy, but how your baby ENTERS THIS WORLD.
“Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.” ― Ina May Gaskin
It really is truly amazing what a woman's body has endured. The beauty of carrying a child is sometimes forgotten when we are striving for our pre-baby bodies. Don't be so hard on yourself…you formed a human being with your body, it deserves a break!
beautiful image - there is no higher form of life on Earth than man and woman and their children...respect life, respect life's Creator, respect yourself. Someone will take your baby if you can't, and be so very grateful for your gift.
