Tuesday, February 23, 2010Two weeks ago I was faced with the greatest challenge of my life: giving birth to my daughter.
Skyla Zoe Kellett was born on February 8, 2010 at home.
For 9 months I couldn't wait to hold my baby girl. I was even looking forward to the birth itself-- the ritual rite of passage from a maiden to mama. (Maybe I would be one of those women who had an orgasmic birth!)
When the time came to push her out I was terrified. "I can't do this."
for options, I begged the midwives to tell me another way... maybe we
could just send her back? How about I NOT have this baby?
Of course, sending her "back" was not an option. (Rationality does not exist to a delirious laboring woman.)
They told me I had to push MUCH harder. But I already thought I was
pushing as hard as I could! Suddenly, something so deep inside me came
alive. It was a force, an inner strength that I never knew existed. All
women have it. YOU have this force.
And the beauty is... this inner force is available to you at any time--even if you've never actually birthed a human.
So... there's two insights I learned during the birthing process that I'd like to pass on to you:
1. "I can't do this" really means "I can't do this by myself."
YOUR ACTION: Get
support. Invest in a good mentor. Who's energy inspires you? Who
challenges you to get outside your comfort zone? Who teaches what you
need to learn?
