Pregnancy, an Opportunity
Here is a list of resources
to assist parents.
Pregnancy is a complex time in a woman's life. No matter your age, you have experiences
and challenges which are preparing you to be the best mother to your child. You have seen
the world, all the good, all the bad, that you have experienced, and can teach your child
The children are our future, is a reality. What we teach them, what they learn from us,
influences the world that will happen. Our genes, passing down to our babies within our
bodies, is the map of generations before us, that has evolved to this point. Without us to
guide them and to teach them the ways of ourselves, our families and our ancestors, they
will need to learn to interpret the map alone.
How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you? A place
for you to go...A place of women, to help you learn the ways of woman...a place where
you were nurtured from an ancient flow sustaining you and steadying you as you sought to
become yourself. A place of women to help you find and trust the ancient flow already
there within yourself....waiting to be released....
A woman's body starts changing the moment of conception. It is helping to prepare us for
motherhood. Nature would not leave us alone to fend for ourselves. The answer is inside of
us. We must listen. We must adhere to the answers that nature is telling us of our bodies.
Hormones and chemicals start changing our bodies, preparing us for being mothers. These are
the keys, igniting the instincts of every mother ancestor before us. This long line of
power, of energy, of knowledge is now ours.

We must have people to support us, to honor this mother we now are. Birth is the most
beautiful of experiences, giving life to this new baby, that combines the past, the
future, and the present, all in to one. Find a Doula
No one should be a mother alone. Seek out other mothers, seek out others who are on this
path, and honor your experience creating the next generation to take care of us when we are
old, and of the world at large. Mothering
