More than I could handle




Tonight was the inception of a dream I have had for the past year. When teaching childbirth education to families I desire to foster a sense of community among the families that are together every Monday for a month. We hear others talk about their fears, concerns, joys and we learn as a group. By the end of the month there is a bond there and my dream was to bring it full circle and have a baby reunion where each family can bring their precious baby and share their birth story.


I was running behind on getting the invitations out and was worried the attendance would be low, but we had all but one family show up. As they started coming in the door, I really felt like it was more than I could handle! I was so overjoyed to see these beautiful babies and their proud mommies and daddies. As we sat around telling birth stories and how things did or did not go "as planned", it gave us all a better understanding of birth and the mystery of it.


As their childbirth educator, to see the things they implemented in birth and the empowerment they felt because of getting better educated on the birth process is priceless. Tonight I go to bed with overwhelming joy to know that my position in educating families is making a difference! Pure Joy.......
