Birth Dream

After reading Rixa's post Supporting Your Own Perineum yesterday, I had a dream last night that I was birthing at home. At least it felt like home, but it did not look like the house we live currently live in or any house I've lived in before. Ina May Gaskin was my midwife. She sat cross-legged in the corner of the room and quietly watched while I crouched on the floor and provided my own counter-pressure as I birthed a baby boy into my own hands. It was a beautiful dream.

The Birthing Quilt

Rixa also recently shared the link to the story of this beautiful birthing quilt. Read the story, it is very special. I love the image on it--I think that is the position I was in in my dream.
