Greetings mamas! My name is Jen & I am a long-time Mothering reader & subscriber, alternative schooler, homebirther, mama to three boys (12, 10, 5), and pregnant with baby #4 due in December.
I am also a doctoral level researcher, and my work involves collecting stories of profound, spiritual, life-altering events that happen during childbirth - those moments when angels were there to support you, you felt the life-force of your ancestors, you embraced your own power in a new way, etc. I am collecting mini-stories through an online survey, and will later be doing about 20 in-depth interviews with mamas across the country.
The only requirements are that 1. you live in the US; 2. you have given birth in the last year, and 3. you have a story to share! The survey only takes a few moments to complete, and can be found here:
Thank you so much for your support of this research! You can also pass this link on to any other mamas that you know.
Jen - Partner to Joe, Craig, & Jordan , mama to DS1 (7/13/99), DS2 (10/27/01), and DS3 (6/13/06), and DS4 born 12/13/12! Attachment Parent, co-sleeper, baby-wearer, Sudbury School founder & educator, PhD Candidate doing birth research, cloth diaper lover, GF (again), etc!
