What is Your Love Creating? What are Your Choices and Beliefs Creating about Pregnancy, Childbirth? More of What You Want or Don't Want? Ummm?

"So your choices, each moment, to operate in fear or to operate in knowing, which is your safety, can assist you in operating in new ways to the extent that you align to the choice to do so. If you stand in your choice in this very second and ask yourself, "Where am I operating from? Am I in my knowing? Am I in my fear? Am I responding out of cultural requirements for my behavior or not? you get an understanding of who and what you are, and the choices that you will then make will be in accordance with your knowing." By Paul Selig, The Book of Love and Creation.

How does this relate to you during pregnancy and birthing your child? During your pregnancy, while you are in childbirth, your choice is to either operate in fear or operate in knowing, which is your safety. By operating in your knowing, means you choose to be in love, to operate from this love, when you are "pregnant" or "in labor."  You are at choice in this very second, to choose anew. You cannot choose anew if you are not aware of what you are thinking, what you are feeling. So the questions are as is quoted by Paul above, "Where am I operating from? Am I in my knowing? Am I in my fear? Am I responding to pregnancy and childbirth out of cultural beliefs and requirements... "Childbirth is painful and unmanageable;" "medications must be taken;" "I must feel comfortable during childbirth"; "I don't want to feel any pain;" "Just knock me out!" "You're crazy if you are having a natural birth, why would you put yourself through that?"  "What is a doula, and why do I need one?"  "Do they really help?"  "We can't afford to hire a doula." All of these questions, statements come up because fear is present, either fear of I don't believe I can have a natural birth. The fear based thought that I don't have enough money, and so on."

How is it that pregnancy and childbirth are the  result of two people physically loving one another.  How is it that at the point of creation (orgasmic release), the growth of a child within a woman's womb is filled with such love, miraculousness, and mind blowing joy but as childbirth draws nearer and childbirth more imminent, fear and not love becomes the prominent choice, the familiar and comfortable choice? If you are birthing from your knowing, you love, your childbirth experience will reflect this. If you are birthing from your belief in separation, your fear, your childbirth experience will reflect this. During pregnancy fears can be consciously or unconsciously pressed down, unacknowledged, ignored, affirmed over, and then toward the end of pregnancy, they can surface like a thief in the night.

Acknowledging your fears during pregnancy about childbirth, being aware of your thoughts in any given moment, will help you be honest with yourself. Only when you become aware of what is unconsciously driving you, can you make a new choice.  So many women know what they don't want to experience during childbirth, which is a pitocin, epidural, c-section, but they have not focused enough on what they truly want to experience. What we focus on we call forth into our experience.(It is not good or bad, it just is). You have to be willing to use the nine plus months of pregnancy God has given you and do your inner work, and prepare your spirit, mind, and body for birth.

May your childbirth experience be filled with love, grace and present moment awareness by means of your breath. May you ask yourself, "What am I operating from? Love or Fear." Remember, Love raises our frequency and draws more Love to us.

The Birth of Giovanni Miguel

Dearest Mini,

I witnessed you on Friday morning, July 19, 2013, peel back the layers of fear and question... I witnessed you surrender and stand without reservation in your God Power, the Divine Feminine within you, that is you, as you birthed forth your beloved son, Giovanni Miguel.  What an incredible journey of faith you demonstrated for yourself, family, friends and all of humanity! I am deeply, deeply honored to have been by your side these past 3+ months.  You my dear Mini are an extraordinary and beautiful woman. I have the photos to prove it!  I witnessed a wife and her husband, a mother and father birth their son together. Your beloved husband, Martin is God's humbled man in service to his wife and his sons.  His heart so full of joy to be the first human, the first human! to put his hands on his son as Giovanni was birthed into this world.  What an extraordinary moment for Giovanni to have his father catch him as he gently spilled from his mama's sacred womb, the home he shared with you for nine months. What a powerful and relief-filled moment to have his papa right there to catch him. I am sure that your son Giovanni will never forget the moment of his birth, I certainly will not. 

As Giovanni was in two worlds at the same time (the visible and invisible), and being fully supported by both his parents, his father gently cradling his emerged head in his hand until the rest of his body could come out; while you patiently waited for the next birth wave (contraction) so that you could completely release him from your womb.  This is the only time during pregnancy (during labor) where a mother and father can simultaneously physically touch their child at the exact same time while the child is still in the womb. This was so breathtaking to watch.  You and Martin worked as one as you both birthed your son. He held every part of you up during your birth experience.
This was phenomenal to behold. After Giovanni was completely in this world, the two of you barely spoke. Time stopped, others ceased to exist except for the three of you. There was a deep silence of gratitude where only the energy and activity of love rang out. It was palpable.  Thank you Mini, Martin and Giovanni for allowing me to yet again, bear witness. I am deeply grateful.

Welcome to the world Giovanni, you've come to do great things!

Birthed at South Coast Midiwifery in Irvine.

The world was glued to the national news about Kate and Prince William's engagement; we were glued to the television when they married; and once again we will be glued to the television to hear any announcement pertaining to the birth of their first child, the future King or Queen of England!  

A major change in the way women view birth in American and the way they give birth in America may occur because of this beloved woman, the Duchess of Cambridge and her Prince! Many around the world copied her engagement ring, copied her wedding dress.... well.... don't stop there! She is birthing her child in the UK where they offer FREE prenatal care and birthing to all women, not just for the rich or just for the duchesses! And... the primary care persons are Midwives! Now in Kate's case, she has two OBGYNS to care for her and baby. (Personally, I believe a midwife is more than qualified to support Kate during her birthing. Maybe when the next heir is born, they will have an OBGYN and Midwife present... I can hope.)  Even though she has two Obstetricians, I would dare venture to say that the Royal Family (Kate and William's choice, ummmm?) will do all things possible to make sure that this child is born in the healthiest way possible, meaning with as little to no medical intervention during the birth process.  We may never know how she gave birth, natural, medicated or c-section.  I write this article because where Kate is concerned and no matter what she does or where she goes, she impacts the world, especially, young pregnant women and the future mother's in American! So mamas-to-be pay very close attention to how other women in other countries are birthing their babies!  The U.S. used to believe and birth in this way.

If many in the world did not know this, they know now because of Kate's pregnancy that the UK provides FREE prenatal care and childbirth to all women, plus, MIDWIVES are the PRIMARY CAREGIVERS during PREGNANCY!  So it seems that most women in the UK (and in most other countries, except America) believe in "natural childbirth," allowing the woman's body to do what it was meant to do, which is to give birth naturally without medical intervention.

(Note: If you are a healthy pregnant woman, the baby within your womb is healthy, may I highly suggest that you choose the natural way to birth, it is healthier for you and your baby!  Choosing  natural childbirth requires you to be fully responsible and conscious of your choices) (For those pregnant women who are experiencing challenges during pregnancy, your choices are quite different, but are equally conscious and infused with great responsibility and tough choices. May you make the best choices you can and be in acceptance of your own unique pregnancy and birthing journey.)

Blessings, love and light to each of you.
