I am looking for some good personal anecdotes or reading about the spiritual realm that babies exist in during pregnancy and the transition that takes place during labor and birth. I am also interested in the role of the mother in this spiritual transition.
I once heard a priest tell a story about a three year old boy who was meeting his new baby sister for the first time. He asked his parents if he could be alone with her for a while. They agreed, but turned the baby monitor on so they could hear what he was doing. After they left the room the boy whispered to his sister, "Could you tell me where we came from? I'm begining to forget."
I have also heard that some Native Americans believe the woman in labor travels to the spiritual world to bring her child to earth.
I would love to read more about this subject but have not been able to find credible material.
