I got brave a week or so ago and posted this in my blog - first time I've ever posted poetry before - and now decided to get super brave and post it here too<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Would love to read empowering birth poetry that others have written, I'm looking to get inspired for my upcoming birth!<br><br>
_________<br><br><div style="text-align:center;"><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to give birth under your own power?</b><br>
Your own glorious, womanly, goddess-like power.<br>
Unadulterated, unrefined, unaltered feminine strength.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to reach deep within?</b><br>
To the very core of your being, your essence, your very soul<br>
And know that you are strong, wise and made for this task.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to trust without reservation?</b><br>
To believe in your body, your baby, your inborn wisdom.<br>
Birthing in harmony with women across the world in passion and faith and wholehearted surrender, knowing that you are the manifestation of Mother Nature's great design.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to labor surrounded by those who adore you?</b><br>
Only your family, friends and cherished companions.<br>
Buoyed, lifted, supported by a communion of hands and hearts and minds.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be honored in birth?</b><br>
To be a part of a community that respects your choices, accepts your path and blesses your way.<br>
With shared insight, total confidence and ultimate faith.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to labor without inhibition?</b><br>
To moan and sigh and dance and dream.<br>
Responding to your body's intuitive knowing: unreserved, unrestrained and totally free.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to give yourself over to the forces of birth?</b><br>
Stretching, expanding. spiraling to the edge of the universe.<br>
Knowing that you will always come back, centered and aware.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to relinquish yourself to the duality of birth?</b><br>
Animalistic and serene, primal and still at the very same time.<br>
Allowing yourself to be whatever the moment demands, because the moment is bigger than you and it is you.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to deliver a baby into an intimate cocoon?</b><br>
The safest haven of peace, respect and trust.<br>
Secure, protected, encircled with love.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to bring a child into the world in ecstasy?</b><br>
In a state of natural, blissful, out-of-this-world elation.<br>
In rapture, divinity, earthly delight beyond all comprehension.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to bring your baby from your womb to your arms?</b><br>
Your own hands lifting your baby to your heart.<br>
Touching, caressing and embracing without disturbance or policy or timelines to alter your first magical moments.<br><br><b>Do you ever wonder what it would be like to give birth under your own power?</b><br>
I did. And I did.<br>
And I will again.<br>
Soon.</div>
