To My Sweet Baby
I trust your wisdom; I have faith that you know better than any of us earthside.
I know the veil is so thin for you that you are connected to the truth.
I will not interfere with that pureness.
I will only have patience trust and faith.
I know the discomfort I am feeling is only physical. I know it will not last. I know that it will vanish the moment you are in my arms.
I will only feel the ecstasy of birthing you and giving you life.
I am in awe with every tightening I feel in my belly. It reminds me that my body and you sweet little one, will work in perfect unison so that we’ll soon meet.
I welcome the physical change with anticipation and excitement.
I will give birth without fear, for myself and for all the other women who come after me.
I will give birth with power, to give women who birth after me hope and strength to pull from.
Birth is safe, as safe as life can be.
I will trust in it
And bring you sweet baby into this world with confidence, love and courage.
No matter how weak or tired I feel I know my body is strong and my uterus powerful.
I wait, in anticipation to it tightening, squeezing and pushing you my baby earthside.
I am honored to be part of this process.
I cannot wait to hold you, smell you, and feel the glory of birth.
That moment is irreplaceable and I yearn to feel the empowering triumph of birthing without fear.
