Birth Truths

✨What if we told women the truth about birth✨

We’d have to tell them that contractions will probably be more than “surges” or “sensations.”

That they’ll probably rock your f✨cking world and leave you begging for salvation as you clutch the edge of the tub or the hospital linens

That your gentle breathing exercises and your Spotify soundtrack will be left in the dust as you sweat and pant and sway and swear your way through it

That you’ll trip harder than any mushroom you ever did in college and vomit with the same ferocity and travel to places deep within yourself that you didn’t know existed. That you’ll float above your body and simultaneously be trapped in it with an intensity you’ve never tasted

And in that intensity, in the sweating and the swearing and the swaying and the vomiting and the endless hours of contractions crashing down upon you

You’ll find your strength

You’ll find a resilience you’ve never known

You’ll find the power you need for the journey of motherhood ahead

In the messy humanity of it all

You’ll find that you are holy

A portal to the divine

Capable of indescribable miracles

A vessel of sacred life

What if we told women the truth about birth?

We’d have to tell them they are capable of anything

Worthy of being treated like goddesses

Made to walk through the flames

Surf the tidal waves

Dive into the underworld

And come out alive

Not unscathed

Not unchanged

But whole

And healed

And ready to take on the world

If we told women the truth about birth

We’d have to admit that we’ve lied about everything else

And that they are more powerful

More fierce

More capable

More beautiful

Than we’ve ever let on.

If we told the truth about birth?

We’d shatter the world.”

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
