Red Tent “Tales of Childbirth” – May 9, 2019

Female 360° cycle, motherhood, fertility, menopause, Group Pathways

We carry Life for nine months.

Sometimes at first we have a little trouble getting used to this new condition

Sometimes the greatest difficulty can occur when the time comes to “let it go”

Ideas, desires, hopes and expectations are being formed fears doubts difficulties manifest themselves

Childbirth is about us, and the way our child comes into the world will be part of his or her baggage forever.

It doesn’t matter whether you gave birth vaginally or by C-section, it matters how you went through the experience, how you felt, what you carry deep in your heart.

So many times I heard “everything went well” just because the delivery had been vaginal…but it was apparent from the narrative that there had been very little that was “natural.”

Whether you have given birth naturally or surgically, had an ecstatic or painful and depriving birth, whether it happened a few months or 30 years ago, telling, sharing, and reframing the ‘birthing experience can enable you to better integrate this transformative passage into your life and perhaps give you a better understanding of the dynamics of your relationship with your son/daughter.

I look forward to seeing you at Le Maree Center to talk about it together in the intimate and protected setting of the RED TENT

Thursday, May 9, 6:30 p.m. – for info and registration
