Quote of the day

Birth is not only about making babies. It's about making mothers - strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength.
- Barbara Katz Rothman 



  1. I love this. So many times I've been in attendance at a birth and see something so amazing, not just the birth of a baby but also the birth of a mother. Both parents if present. It is a beautiful, beautiful thing. And it happens over and over again. Each child born into a family gives their parents a gift, no matter the path their birth into that family takes. They birth their parents to be the parents they need. All five of my daughters have helped shape me to be the mother I need to be for them when they were born. I have been blessed by all that they have taught me.

  2. You are right, my husband said it was something similar for him too... but of course I can't speak for men and I was a little preoccupied at the time
