"Creating life is goddess work. You are stronger, more powerful, and more focused than you’ve ever been. Life force is coursing through your body and you are living life in a heightened state of awareness…What might make you feel vulnerable also makes you fierce. In this state, you are amazing. You are going to access parts of yourself that you didn’t know existed. You are going to face your fears…You are a birth goddess and you will do what needs to be done."
-Quote from the book, Your Best Birth by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein
This quote is true in every sense. I felt very empowered after having my first baby! I honestly felt like I could climb mountains afterwards! Truly pregnancy and birth prepares you for motherhood....those mountains I felt like I could climb are mountains I climb every day as a mother and a parent. If you are expecting or will be expecting in your future...take this quote and read it every day. Empower yourself to be a birth goddess and a mama goddess!
