Dear amazing you;

Do you know how incredible you are?

I remember the day well…

Early in the morning, I got the call – things were happening, the time had come.

I got ready and made my way to you.

Your lovely partner opened the door with music to my ears – ‘perfect timing’.

You stood in the hallway, our eyes met and you came straight into my arms, tears spilling over.

 

“How do I make this better?”

you asked me.

 

I couldn’t help but smile as another wave came over you and you sank to your knees on the yoga mat in the living room. “I don’t know what to do”, you moaned as you rocked back and forth on your hands and knees. I got down there with you.

“Yes you do”, I answered. “In fact, you are doing it. There is nothing that you need to change in order to make this better. This is it! You are following your body, you are doing what you need to do. You just need to get out of your own way. As the feelings intensify, your baby is getting closer!”

 

And I saw a light in your eye. A realization of truth. A moment of surrender.

 

This was such a turning point.

We watched you change before our very eyes. You opened up to the birth experience and you brought your baby forth with an energy and an inner strength that was truly yours. I watched your partner be truly amazed by you and watch you in wonder and awe.

We are in wonder.

We are in awe.

You are amazing.
