Birthing is not innate, Not in this Modern World
Our instincts may be masked and crushed
We may find ourselves being processed
Our questions being hushed.
For many women birth is something they Survive
A life event without honour or joy
It is enough to just get through
with a healthy girl or boy.
For some Birth is transformation
A life event to be embraced and held
She roars with a fire deep within
Determined not to be quelled
Then there are those whose birth instinct comes forth
With a sense of calm and power
She is inward and deeply aware
As she blooms like a flower.
Each woman is full of birthing potential
Within all women lies the chance
To unleash the goddess within
And experience the birth dance
Be Informed, Be Honoured, Be Respected,
This life event is not “just a day”
You deserve to come into your power
And birth in your own way.
