Good things happening in the second trimester! So, I’m not “officially” there yet, since I’m just at the 12 week mark, but it sure is awesome to not feel like I have the flu 24/7! This is a journey that takes every ounce of your soul’s energy, and you willingly want to donate the time. Lately I have taken up the readings of Ina May Gaskin and have found her books to be amazing insights into the fabulous journey that leads up to and then culminates in childbirth. If I lived closer, I think I would sign myself up to give birth on The Farm, but Tennessee is a bit of a drive, especially when considering driving positions while in labor. Her life’s work revolves around the central idea that childbirth does not need to have medical interventions, it is a natural occurrence, and women are very much in charge of their own bodies during the process. I highly recommend reading Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth if you are pregnant, might become pregnant, or are the companion/coach to a pregnant woman, it’s invaluable information that will at least assist you in knowing what exists beyond the popular media hype about pregnancy and birth.
