Me at Natural Baby Pros!

September 23, 2010 at 16:32 2 comments

You may remember the post I wrote for The Connected Mom a few weeks ago about the sings I missed that my practitioner would not support a natural birth. I was so happy with the responses I received, and proud that by telling my story I had such positive effects on women preparing for birth, and women healing from their own birth disappointment.

The article also got the attention of Jen at Natural baby pros. Jen was very supportive and has re posted my article on the Natural Baby Pros website. It will also appear in their upcoming news letter.

Thank you so much to everyone who commented and shared that article. I am so happy that my experience can be used to help others, and excited that my story will reach even more women by being posted on!

    I LOVED this article. I was curious… can I quote you on my website if I link back to your blog and the Natural Baby Pro page?

    This is what I would like to quote:
    I really do trust my husband to take care of me, and when it came time he did the absolute best that he knew how. But here’s the thing about relying on your partner to act as a doula: Not only does your partner likely have the exact same amount of knowledge and experience with labour and birth as you do, it’s also incredibly unfair. Chances are the birth of your child will be just as emotional, overwhelming, and life changing for your partner as it will be for you, you cannot expect them to give you calm and rational advise 100% of the time, and you cannot expect them to know how to help you in every situation that could arise, especially if anything goes wrong, they will not be capable of providing a calm, and rational opinion for you.

    BTW=- thank you for sharing this

      I don’t mind if you quote me at all, as long as you include the appropriate links!

What is a Pocket Buddha?

The pocket Buddha is a talisman, whether the pocket is in our mind or our jeans, the pocket Buddha is there to add a touch of Zen to our lives. He smiles from his dark penny and used tissue filled abode and reminds us simultaneously to go with the flow of our lives and to keep our goals, hopes and dreams ahead of us. At least one moment everyday, the satisfaction of a project completed, the taste of a meal we managed to make without burning, the extraordinary patience we somehow managed to show in the most frustrating of times, the pocket Buddha throws us a pocket-lint sized piece of nirvana, and for that I am very grateful.
