In late 2008 I created a different kind of Vision Board. It was a very specific board created for a very specific outcome. It was all about the birth of my 2nd child, the one I was carrying at the time. I filled the board with pictures of all that I desired the second time around. Sleeping babies and mothers, happy babies and mothers, healthy babies and mothers, and more importantly, positive affirmations and messages about the natural birth I so desired. I even included the name of the doctor, my doulas and the desired due date.
I created this board to heal from my first birth. The birth of my son, my first born, shook me to the core. Read about his Grand Entrance here.
I was a prime candidate, they said, for uterine rupture if I attempted a natural birth. The doctors, the data, the caring friends and family, all urged me to schedule another c-section. I took all of these facts and listened to the Truth inside of me. Despite my fear, I did it anyway. I listened to the still, small voice inside of me, created a Vision Board and studied it intently for months. Morning, noon and night until the day came – January 14, 2009.
My baby girl was born naturally, drug free, in 4 hours from first contraction to birth. It was beautiful, healing and empowering. I owe it all to my Vision Board, my doulas and my husband who believed I could. xo
Discover. Empower. Balance.
