Around 9:30pm the other night, my Doula client needed my support because labor had begun. After talking to her husband I headed over to their house, which was filled with items to welcome their new baby boy.
The birth was amazing. Having the experience of giving birth four times myself, I can approach childbirth education from a personal experience. I share a lot about the Law of Attraction in my birthing classes and discuss the concept of creating the birth you want by feeling more Joy during pregnancy and birth. It's very different than any other birthing "method".
This was a very fast birth and during that time, the husband was so emotionally supportive, that I was able to grab their camera and snap several photos of them together. I SO wish that I have photos like that when my kids were born. I have *very* few photos because I never took the responsibility to "assign" that to someone at my births.
I took this photo during the part of labor called, "transition". It is the most amazing picture because it looks like you can see the intense energy coming from the Mom!
This was the most powerful birth that I have ever attended. Seeing the laboring Mom Joyful in labor is something that I rarely get to witness in hospital births. Watching her smile during pushing made me realize that teaching about birth with the law of attraction component was the secret to empowering and educating couples about birth in a very positive way.
I am sure that other Doulas can relate when I share that this was one of those births that changed me. It gave me even more affirmation that I am on the right path. I love being a Doula and childbirth educator. I am very passionate about helping people learn the Truth about birth and all of the options and choices that couples today are faced with.
I am working on a book called, "Attraction Birth". It's taking a bit longer than I anticipated to finish the book, because I have a few births lined up and really want to go through the experiences before finishing. I plan on offering teacher trainings all over the country to train and certify childbirth educators in, "Attraction Birth". It will be a new and exciting adventure!
Birth is something that changed my entire life philosophy and beliefs. The way that Devin was brought into this world was the very first step onto the path of Trust, Respect and Freedom that we are living today. I know that by educating others about options, I am not only opening doors for them that they didn't know were there for their birth, but for parenting and educating and health care and everything else that follows.
