I just wanted to share this quote my doula shared. I thought it was so empowering:
The power and intensity of your contractions cannot be stronger than you, because it is you.

I am planning on writing on our chalk wall in labor. I'd love hear anything that inspired you!

I loved the quote sent in my MDC pregnancy newsletter this week:

"Rain, after all, is only rain; it is not bad weather.
So also, pain is only pain, unless we resist it, when it becomes torment."
-I Ching

I'd really like to hear more inspirational sayings and quotes to keep in mind or have DH say to me during labour. What a great idea cobabymaker!

Co BabyMaker-

That is the quote that changed my entire perspective on birth and took away all my fear.

I LOVE that quote.

I read this just a few days before I went into labor. It really helped me put everything in perspective. Great quote!!

I was thinking this very thought when I was pregnant with DD#1, and it REALLY helped me feel strong and comfortable with whatever birth brought me. Love it!
