Perspective

Today, I was reading an article on People Magazine's website (yes, I admit it) and I wanted to share this great perspective on becoming a mother. Joy Williams (of The Civil Wars) shared the story of the birth of her son Miles- great name, by the way!- and said: 

“Regardless of how you end up delivering — medication or not — the experience is beautiful and visceral and challenging, but ultimately really empowering.”

I couldn't agree more. Joy talks more about her beautiful birth experience here- check it out and be encouraged!

Have a great weekend!

I'm not a mom, of course, but I really do agree with this sentiment. I think it's sad to see the 'mommy wars' - moms trying to one-up each other based on how they delivered. It's not about that in my mind, ya know? It's about the end product and the beautiful life that begins.

I love this! I am on the same page entirely--I may not breastfeed until my child is five, but that doesn't make it wrong. And the photo, good grief. I think my ovaries just kicked into overdrive...
