There is nothing more beautiful to me than a childbirth. Nothing.
Ok, I realize that sounds insane to some. Especially if you’ve never given birth, or if your birth experience felt invasive and uncomfortable.
I mean it though. I really do find birth beautiful and I want to pursue that passion.
I’ll admit, I didn’t always. When I took the Bradley Method class when I was pregnant with Little Man, some of the birth scenes made me nauseous. Especially the one on crowning where we watched several babies crown, one after the other. That was a little much. That’s not what I’m talking about when I say I find birth beautiful.
I find beauty in the way every woman’s body handles birth. Every birth is so different. Every body moves and reacts to birth differently. The way God designed our bodies so that we can grow another human life inside of us for nine months and then push that little miracle out of a pretty small space is amazing. I’m in aw over the strength and fortitude women possess in order to carry out this miracle.
Over the years I have had many interests and I’ve always dreamed about pursuing those paths, but never did anything. I have met so many people who pursued their dreams, at any cost, because it was what they were passionate about.
I want to be that woman. I want to be that example to my children.
I want to learn everything there is to learn about childbirth and make that my profession. I have waited my whole life to find that one thing that to light a spark in my heart and this is it. I’ve always thought about nursing because I love to help people, but now I found something where I can help people while being part of something I find beautiful.
I’m going to become a birth doula. I’m going to make it happen and then, one day, I will be a midwife. I’m going to sign up for a training this week and I will keep you updated on my progress!
