"My body is powerful, but it also has taken time for it feel like my own again. It is so different than it ever was, there are not only stretch marks but there is also pain I never had before my pregnancy.
I was ill and on bedrest much of my pregnancy. It was a very challenging process, no matter how excited I was. It was also hard to let go of the fear of losing him, when I had just had faced loss.
I am so inspired and awed by what women go through in our lifetime. The transition from maiden to mother is a passage I don't think our culture celebrates enough. There are so many expectations of a new mother, most that do not line up with the most important part, that deep connection between mama and baby.
Just breath and trust yourself."
