There is a beauty to birth and being a birth professional. A sort of Ebb & Flow that I really enjoy. Sometimes births are fast and furious. Other times they are slow and steady. Still other times they are illusive and mysterious. I find that being a birth professional is quite the same. I have found that just letting it happen is a truly beautiful process. Learning to enjoy the downtimes as much as the busy times as much as the unknown times is the fun of it. Not getting caught in the monotony of existing is so important, I want to live and enjoy each moment before it passes. The moments that excite me the most and the ones I could live without. I feel that if I learn to love and embrace the Ebb & Flow of being a birth professional, I will be able to impart to my clients how to enjoy each step of the birth process. Embracing the unknown, standing strong in adversity, having courage in desperate moments, and trusting each step of the way that their is strength for the journey. Like a woman waiting to become a mother, With every contraction she experiences and Ebb & Flow, she anticipates "this is it" and sometimes it is and sometimes it's not. However trusting and relying that you do not have to control everything around you is a freeing feeling. Recently at a birth the parents chose not to know the sex of their baby. It was the first time I ever had an opportunity to experience the excitement and anticipation of not knowing. By making that one decision this mom had a card in her hand that helped her all the way through her birth. The joy of not knowing drove her further than she ever thought she could go knowing that the prize was the unveiling of their new baby. They chose to not take control over something they could have and it gave her the energy she needed to deliver her baby, EBB & Flow! Sometimes it helps to just realize that you don't & really can't control everything.....
