Welcome to A Mother’s Nature Home Births with Kelli Johnson
Midwifery is here today to celebrate the domain of women, because only women give birth. Women are the most qualified to decide what sort of care we desire during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Birth is such an important event in a woman’s life, enough to warrant special consideration from those who are involved in the care of women during this most sacred time of life.
It indicates that disrespect of the power of giving birth creates disharmony and ignorance in the world. Giving birth can be the most empowering experience of a lifetime. It is an initiation – a Rite of Passage – into a new dimension of mind and body awareness.
Birth is a force of nature, not a disease we must be rescued from. It has a pattern and a purpose. It is not something to be feared, but to be embraced, to educate ourselves about, and to be nurtured throughout that process.
It is not larger than woman. It is OF Woman! Laura Stavroe Harm states – “We have a secret in this culture, It’s not that birth is painful, It’s that women are strong!”Welcome Elijah Kai
Nurturing your baby during pregnancy imprints our children deeply – generationally, epigenetically.
It is time to bring conscious awareness that even while we are pregnant, our children are listening. Our emotions affect and imprint our children for the rest of their lives. Their birth process affects our children for the rest of their lives.
Suzanne Arms states “If we are to create a non violent world, we must begin with how we treat each other at the beginning of life. It is here that some of our deepest patterns are set.”
It is here that we – as midwives – as a conscious community stand as guardians as Birth Keepers of this most sacred Rite of Passage.
Birth inspires me, teaches me – even after all these years of serving as a guardian. My birthing sisters inspire me as I watch them unfold from their chrysalis of birth energy. As the baby is born, so is the mother.
May we become more conscious each day of how this natural process must be protected. Midwife – the one who stands guard With Woman.
