Birth

Is there anything more amazing than growing another human inside of yourself? Perhaps only the ability to release this human from your body the way nature intended.

I have been fortunate enough to attend a series of natural childbirth classes as the designated birth coach for my cousin. While I am grossly under-qualified for this position, I have learned so much about pregnancy and birth. Previously this was a subject I was wholly disinterest in, and even a bit squeamish about. Today however, I am fascinated by the whole process and really looking forward to being present and an active part of the birth of Ester.

PS- I am also begining to feel extreamly ripped off by mother nature. That bitch.
