We are getting down to the wire now. It’s getting close. Hubba Bubba and I have been going to our prenatal classes for a couple weeks now and it is getting more and more intense every week we go, in a good way. A lot of people gave us the spiel that the minute we go into labor you forget everything you learn, it’s a waste of time, it will all come naturally… blah blah blah. I refused to listen to them, and thank God I did. Instead of the Lamaze classes we hear about everywhere, we are actually taking Hypnobirthing classes instead. What’s the difference? Well instead of the hee hee hoo hoo typical breathing techniques, we go through changing a mother and fathers thought process from what most of society has led us to believe and letting the mothers body take its course without hopefully requiring intervention or procedures and having a healthy natural birth. This class helps your partner to become your birthing partner, you mentor, your backbone. We rely on each other. It actually begins to change the bond in relationships as well, strengthening it and intensifies the love for one another. It’s definitely been an experience.
In our last class, this poem was handed out to all the mothers and we went around the room reading a couple lines and by the time we were done, we were all moved. Especially the last part. This really is a good reminder to all mothers to be what we are capable of and how powerful we are as women. I can’t believe I’ll be a mother soon. Yay! xoxo
