I've gradually begun the process of getting out all the books, I read during my last pregnancy. Last week, I started re-reading the book, Birthing from Within: An Extra-Ordinary Guide to Childbirth Preparation
Of all the different ways to "prepare" for Child-birth, I love this one the most. Maybe it's the Art Therapy part of the preparation. Maybe it's the emphasis on preparing for the "hard work" of Labor. Looking back, I definitely felt like a warrior during my Labor. So much of this book resonates with me and my own Birth experience.
I didn't do any Birth Art (besides my Belly Cast) last time, but I am definitely feeling it now.
Here is my painting of "how does this pregnancy feel?" I'll be sharing some more Birthing From Within exercises over the next two weeks or so.
