What exactly do we “trust” when we “trust birth?”
How do we know to trust it?
How can we bring more balance to the habit ways we may reflexively proclaim our trust?
If we trust our bodies fully, we must also trust that our body will let us know when things aren’t ok, and that we may need help.
If we trust birth, we must also trust death. Sometimes there is an actual physical death, but always there is a death of the self, a death of our way of being in the world.
If we trust our doctor or midwife, we must also trust when our body tells us yes or no to something they suggest.
If we trust in the unknown and that which is utterly out of our control, we must also trust in the creative solutions of coping and determination.
If we trust in ourself and our incredible power, we must also trust that we are part of a community, both human and non-human.
