What I learned from labor and birth (part 2 in a series)

5 January 2010 at 1:17 am Leave a comment

I learned that life and our bodies really are miraculously, magically, perfectly constructed. I learned that all the mantras I was raised with really do hold true: You can do anything if you put your mind to it.

I learned to trust other people, to work as a team, to let people support me. I learned not to have to try to control everything, not to worry about the next moment, but just to exist. I learned to do without thinking, to not overthink (this was a biggie for me, personally).

I learned that there really is something in that whole do-the-action-and-the-feeling-follows thing: relax your body, for instance, and you relax your mind.

So, what did you learn?
