Dear Amazing, Pregnant Woman:
Respect yourself and your intuition.
Respect that you know what is right for you and for your baby.
Respect the once-in–lifetime duo that is you and your baby; motherbaby.
Respect your physical body, your thoughts, feelings and mental well-being.
They all matter. Equally.
Respect the timing of pregnancy, labor and birth.
All is Divine. And perfect.
Respect the delicate hormones, the amazing pain relief of your very own body.
It will amaze you.
Respect that you have every right to be in charge of your birth.
That what you say goes, and that anybody you invite is privileged to be with you.
Simply with you. With woman. To hold the space, the sacred space that you will create.
That you have created, already.
There is no one else you need to do this for. No way you need to do this. No way you need to be.
Respect yourself. Respect your baby.
Trust the process.
That is all that is required.
And when it’s through, the labor and birth process…
You will be initiated. For the first time, or in a different way than before.
You will have walked the way of billions of your sisters.
In perfection, whatever that looks like for you.
Love yourself; you are radiant and beautiful and powerful.
Respect the miracle that is birth.
