Despite those complications, my son's birth was absolutely perfect. I felt safe, supported and cared for.
I am flooded with emotions...gratitude, bliss, love, amazement, wonder.
Our son was born at 644 am Sunrise. In a tub of warm water in our kitchen. I didn't need a single suture. Just over 3 hours of active labor.
Olympia helped our family to design and create the most amazing experience and still be flexible to the unknowns as life unfolded. We made a safe, peaceful, love-filled, sacred space to welcome our Son.
I am eternally grateful.
I was and am in awe of how these ladies manage to be so strong and tough and gently nurturing. I realize now that that is what it takes to be a Mother for me and what the whole birth experience is for me.
I am grateful to have found providers whose very nature embody what childbirth and motherhood mean to me.
I cannot imagine this postpartum period without them. They have fed me, cleaned up after me, encouraged me, wiped my tears, listened to me, entertained my daughter, etc. They call just to check on us. We are wrapped up in love. We feel safe--physically, and emotionally.These ladies will never be paid enough for what they have done for my family."
