There’s a time in a woman’s life when she momentarily becomes someone she’s never known she could be.
That time is labor.
Speaking specifically about the very first labor she undergoes, but not completely excluding any subsequent labors.
There is a fierce being waiting to perform what she was created to do in every woman.
See, as women, one of the blessings our bodies were given was to create, grow, and birth children, something our male counterparts will never biologically be able to do or experience.
Keeping this in mind, our fierce being (regardless of how we choose to birth our babies or end up having to birth our babies) will perform, will feel, will execute.
There will be adrenaline, oxytocin, prostaglandins, maybe catecholamines and other hormones that will all help make up the personality of this fierce being.
That being may cuss, scream, cry, be grateful, pray, or even vomit all over the place, but it will be and being is very important to the success of your baby’s birth.
Trust it. Let it free. Let it be.
It may not reflect who you are on a daily basis, but it exists for a reason and that reason will/should make you so proud, so be proud of yourself.
When you think what a strong momma your friend was for giving birth in a “better form” than you, just remember that you too were a fierce being that one time.
YOU (and no one else) birthed your baby.
