The night is dark with glimmering stars,
It’s 10pm and I know exactly where my children are.
I’m inside my home with the lights dim,
On the speakers plays a soft, pleasant birthing hymn.
I’m hydrated by coconut water,
as I envision welcoming my beautiful daughter.
My palate is sweetened with mango and chamomile tea,
My doula is present and is holding space with Reiki.
Now, my baby and I are full of feminine superpower,
as we do our work in a warm, relaxing shower.
On my birth ball, my hips move around in rotations,
as I repeat my mantra and recite my positive birth affirmations.
My midwife is there to safely guide,
and my husband and children are right by my side.
I gently transition to the warm birth tub,
as this mama bear is ready to push out her sweet baby cub.
As the night fades and transforms into day, I gently breathe in and out in a calm and controlled way.
I rest in my hubby arms, holding his hands with a squeeze, as my doula helps keep my legs wide by holding my knees.
With my chin to my chest, I bear down and push, just a few times, then I see a head and shortly after a tush.
A short little swim, then skin-to-skin.
“I love you, you’re perfect”, I sweetly whisper, as I nuzzle my angel and gently kiss her.
The room is enchanting and overflowing with love, as I cradle my baby girl and thank the creator above.
