Birthwork

I learned a couple of things from being a birthworker- 

  1. How we speak to ourselves and others directly affects our ability to trust, surrender, grow, and become. 
  2. Memories live inside the body, traumatic or not, and shape you/your decision on the outside. 
  3. Learning how to reframe words could make all the difference between devastation vs empowerment. 
  4. Birthing a baby into this word can’t not change you as a woman. 
  5. Every single person that has been birthed into this existence has a different birth story. 
  6. There are countless women who want to provide a voice for those who feel as if their voice has been taken away. 
  7. Sometimes it can take months, even years, to process a single moment and realize the truth behind what your heart has been feeling. 
  8. The birth work world is a lot larger than I would have guessed. 
  9. Bodies intuitively know how to birth a baby. 
  10. We have moved so far away from our instinctual nature that somehow we’ve forgotten our true strength and power.

I can only speak from […]
