Watching a Mama Achieve Some Sheer Awesomeness!

The following video is from the homebirth of a friend of mine whose baby was born three weeks to the day after our last. She rocks this birth! Check it out!

My first thought was, "Wow! She made sounds exactly like I did!" - which is just awesome!

This is birth in the very real sense. Raw, unvarnished (no new-age soundtracks!), up-close and personal. Women who have not yet given birth may find it a bit overwhelming, but it's awesome and inspiring at the same time.

Does birth hurt? Yeessss. But it is also the most powerful, transformational, and inspiring work that a woman can do, and it is utterly amazing to witness a woman in all of her power doing the work that God designed her body to do.

Congratulations to this family!!!
