Dance with Birth 〇 I am strong

“I am strong. That I am sure of. That is what I tell myself. That is my truth. The whole pregnancy I helped myself to remember. I trust. I am strong. I am grateful for my body. I am not afraid. I can do this. And I am looking forward to it.”

Remembering - When I gave birth to Pepijn I understood the immense strength of my body. When I gave birth I had access to a strength inside of myself that I didn’t know of. My body knew exactly what to do. The power was there when it was needed. As if a force beyond myself was supporting me in my journey of giving birth. I want to remember that this force will always be available for me.

* Dance With Birth is the name of the film I made about the natural water birth of my son in 2019. Lin to the movie: https://www.tamaracatharina.com/dance-with-birth
