My name is Kim. I’m a wife, a mom, a birth coach, and many other roles, but these are the roles that I’ll be focusing on in this blog. I love birth. Lots. I didn’t always. There was a time it scared me. Then there was a time that it empowered me beyond anything I’d experienced, and I wanted to shout it from the the rooftops. Then there was Jonathan’s birth. It changed everything.
It’s been over a year now. I was so excited for his birth. This was baby #6. I knew how to give birth. My husband & I felt very inspired as to how his birth was supposed to play out. It was going to be a sacred, beautiful experience for our family. Well, it started out beautiful, but in the end, I felt cheated in ‘the perfect birth’ I was ‘supposed’ to have had. It all felt very traumatic. I cried. Lots.
I’ll explain more of the details of this part in the future, but here’s the overview. I learned some incredible tools that helped me work on my thoughts. I used those tools to work on my thoughts about this birth experience. I now LOVE Jonathan’s birth. It was sacred. It was beautiful. My family felt heaven in a special way that day.
The circumstances of that day didn’t change. They never will. My thoughts about it changed which changed my feelings about it. This lit a fire within that I must share. This is why I started this blog. My prayer is that you, too, will be blessed by these beautiful tools. Let’s get going on this beautiful journey!
