I very much believe that becoming a Mother is an empowering and uplifting process, and I’m striving to provide anyone who hopes to one day be a mother or already is a new or expecting mother with the information needed to make the best choices for your family. I really do feel that together we can take the fear and anxiety out of pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood in general. So let’s change the way we look at Motherhood, and enjoy the journey together.
I’m Mrs. B. and this is Little G snuggling just days after our painless birth.
My journey to Motherhood started when I was a kid. I remember being little and thinking about the family I would have and what kind of Mom I wanted to be. Like most little girls my age I dreamed about what it would be like to have kids, a husband and all the fun stuff we would all do together.
By the time I was 10 I had been telling people I would have 9 kids and pretty much bragging about how awesome a Mom I wanted to be. And around this time is when women I looked up to and respected started telling me how horrible it was going to be to have one baby, not to meantion the 9 I was planning on.
To say the least I was hurt, and as the years progressed I stopped talking about my future 9 kids. In my teens I developed strange and eradic mood swings, going from deep depression to extream highs of elation. Still beliving I was meant to be a Mom I sought out people with happy stories of “it was all worth it”.
In my 20’s I pulled out of the whole Mommy concept because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE seemed to think that Motherhood was the scariest thing anyone could ever do. Specifically the whole labor and delivery part, apparently I was to expect excruciating pain and suffering for childbirth and while it would be all worth it I could never expect to feel better until the kids got kicked out of the house. This was not what I had been envisioning.
Now in my 30’s having found an amazingly supportive husband, and having been through the process of giving birth, I have to say I’m a tad mad. Mad that people felt the need to scare me about childbirth, mad that people felt I had to be anxious and fearful over what it means to be a Mom. And I am choosing to walk a different path.
I belive that, if you have an uncomplicated pregnancy, and an uncomplicated birth it doesn’t have to be painful.
I also belive that being a Mommy is one of my highest and most empowering experiences, and it brings so much joy and fullfillment to my life.
And I want to share that empowerment and joy with you!
If we shared more positive birth stories and gave women the best labor advice ever, or how to take care of yourself postpartum while coming from a place of love, and empowering women in general to take back control of their Motherhood; we really could remove more of the fear around things like the pain of childbirth.
And while I’m exhausted, bewildered, and a tad confused most of the time, I’m also a whole lot in love with the life and family I have now.
Join me here to be empowered and uplifted on your Motherhood journey!
