Where Mothers Build Their Nests

women give birth every day in unbelievable places and circumstances…


in hot tubs, and warm ocean pools…

in rice paddies, mountain villages and igloos…

in beds, birth huts and birthing chairs,


Mothers the world over give birth

counting stars and under bright lights…

in fields, dugouts, and by fireplaces…

in planes and trains…

in one-room shacks and operating rooms.


Mothers and nature always find a way.


from my current read, Birthing From Within by Pam England. Just a reminder to not focus on the surroundings and the circumstances but the doing and the act itself.
