Good Morning! We're having breakfast and hanging out today.

I started reading the book "Birthing From Witihin" last night. It's really great so far. It is addressing my fears of labor and birth and bringing them to a front so I can deal with them. I read a quote which really helped me. I don't have the exact quote in front of me, but it's along these lines, we are brought to the point where we would surrender to death in labor, in order to be reborn as a mother, birthed right with our child.

Found that interesting because I am afraid of labor this go around because I felt it was so extreme last time, but when I think of it as a transforming experience where I was "reborn" was a mother, it makes so much more sense.

Anyone else read this book? Have a good day!!!
