I hope you had a great Mother’s day, honoring and being honored.
There is no doubt that a mama is source for the child and the whole family.
So I wonder why, in our culture, for a mom to take care of herself beyond the basics- to desire pleasure- is considered frivolous or even selfish?
And to think about pleasure in birth? Well that is almost sacrilegious, if not absurd.
But let me ask you this- Would you have been happier, as a child, if your mother had been happier? Not. A. Doubt.
Now imagine a new mom, postpartum. Doesn’t she deserve to start the wild ride of motherhood from a place of joy, pleasure, and empowerment? Doesn’t her baby? That doesn’t feel sacrilegious or absurd at all. Expectant mamas and their babies deserve no less.
So in the spirit of celebration of mothers and my upcoming birthday (May 18th!), I am running a special on the Ecstatic Birth Training Sessions. The sessions are an unprecedented opportunity to learn directly from the experts in the worlds of female health, birth, and sensuality including Ina May Gaskin and Dr. Christiane Northrup.
Give the gift of a pleasurable birth to yourself, an expectant mama in your life, or a woman who wants to be a mother someday. It is never too soon to begin integrating this life-changing information.
Here’s to more babies having happy mamas right from the start!
