The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
As a mother of eight who hopes to one day become certified as a childbirth educator and/or birth doula, I am fascinated by pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. I have really enjoyed the Woman to Woman writing project that Morning Glory and Lei have started. For me, exploring my feelings and experiences through writing can be very enlightening, even cathartic.
One of the greatest things about blogging is meeting so many interesting women. Sometimes I am reaffirmed by like-minded bloggers, sometimes my eyes are opened by a fresh perspective. I am interested in starting a writing project and hearing what others have to say about different aspects of motherhood. If there is an interest, I will host this on the first Fridays of the month, starting next Friday, April 6. I'll put up a Mr. Linky; please link to your Moments in Motherhood post, rather than your blog itself.
Here is the first topic, for next Friday, April 6:
Was birth an empowering experience for you? Do you agree with the statement "you birth the way you live"? Did your birth experience(s) impact you in a long-term way?I hope one or all of these questions set your mental wheels churning. Feel free to grab my button, or email me if you'd like the code for a button with link. Please spread the word! I'm excited to hear what you have to say.
