18 weeks today ✨ This baby is just determined to make mommy a proud belly bump, which is cool because I love rocking it ✌
The first couple of months were shit scary, paralyzed by utter surrealism. I've gotten acclimated to my new reality and I absolutely love 💖 being pregnant. I wake up every morning in awe that there is a little human growing inside my temple, a spirit that chose ME to bring them Earth side. Waves of gratitude spill between me and my partner who are so thrilled for this journey together.
My current work is focused on digging beyond societal norms of labor and postpartum. It is incredible what the female body is capable of, and what you're not seeing in medical textbooks or TV programs... no surprise there, keeping people in fear of a completely natural, instinctive process.
Am I saying all births go as planned? Not always. I am curious though how woman would respond to necessary interventions if our medical system had a more compassionate, "woman first" approach... Food for thought.
Anyway this turned into a lot longer ramble than intended. I just wanted to show off the pregnancy bod and say how blessed i am for this privilege. We are planning a safe, sweet and sacred home birth and I feel really confident where things are headed. I'm so.so.so grateful😍
