My eyes welled up with love and joy
as I studied every feature on her face.
She was perfect. Tiny. A little piece of me.
The whole birth experience was beautiful,
calm, and enlightening.
For 9 months I had dreamed of this,
and now I knew for sure.
My body knew exactly what to do!
I was made to do this!
Birth didn't have to be a
scary, painful, traumatic event.
Just the opposite!
It could be the most empowering
day of a mother's life!
This was not my first birth, but it was
the start of something wonderful.
A mission to tell other women
they could do it, too!
