Carolina In My Mind by James Taylor.. it was just too crazy!
Tara, I'm reading and HOLY BUTTERFLIES!! That's incredible and I got SOOOO many chills while reading this!!!!
And you're right, the 30's are absolutely AWESOME!! I've never been one to deny my age, as we only getting better and better!
Oh, thank, Pat! I
Laura Shanley. She was kind enough to talk to me on the phone after my 2nd miscarriage -- and sorta helped me see how I helped manifest that. Hard to swallow at the time, and I do think ds played his part in it too, but it all worked out EXACTLY how it needed to.
Laura has always been SO about creating your own reality -- her book Unassisted Childbirth is all about getting in the right mental space. Wonderful!

I need to order new business cards. Should I change my title from birth doula to "Law of Attraction Birth Coach"?
Memiles -- YES, a LOA inspired Birth Coach would be a GIFT to the world!! And I KNOW you'd get a ton of business now that the Secret is so well-known. I'll gift you my CD's after they're completed -- my "Beautiful Birth" CD is all about using visualization to manifest the kind of birth you want.

I just kept telling my body to embrace the hormonal change and it did! Also, I haven't had a prenatal b/c I just feel like this is so personal and I know everything is perfect. I sort of feel like this is my LoA baby, almost like the birth consciousness helped attract the knowledge to me. I mean really my entire world has changed since conceiving at Christmas.
Hillary, this is SO, SO beautiful! I'm so happy and thrilled for you and your baby!!!! I can't WAIT to hear all about your LOA inspired Beautiful Birth!

He was born 10 minutes after we got to the hospital (which I'd acceded to because of family concerns) and is now a bright and beautiful 7.5 years old.
So, did I "cause" Jacob's death? No, I don't think so. But my fears of complications surely got in my way. Did I manifest a smooth birth for Noah? Yes, I think I did- I got out of my own way, and let the Universe take care of things.
Jordmoder -- your post is so moving and so beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing this story.
I'm truly inspired by you.
I've said it before but I"ll repeat it since we're talking about it
My ds was soooo my LoA coach while in utero. He even gave me "assignments" that I read about 2 years later in LoA books!
And it's funny, but one of the common practices of Mamas who choose to have UC is to read "Emergency Childbirth" so they know what to do in case of emergency. I started to read it, but then realized it was putting all these scenarios in my head that I never knew existed -- and I realized that knowing ALL the things that could go wrong was not neccesarily a good thing (as TaraCC said). So, I put the book away in a place where I knew where it was but didn't have to look at it. Same with the emergency number to the clinic -- put it away.
I believe BIRTH is one of the best ways to see LoA in practice -- so teaching women where to put their focus is SUCH A WONDERFUL THING! You go, Memiles!
Also, wanted to say, Pookietooth, I see you!
Have a glorious Monday!!!!!
