Did you ever feel overwhelmed and just need to talk something through with someone who can listen without judgement, give information and options, and help you sort through your thoughts and feelings until you can hear what your inner voice is telling you?
That’s what Vox Sophia Mentoring was created to help you do!
I was 38 weeks into pregnancy when my contractions started. I was in denial because I thought my baby would wait to be born until around 41 weeks. But my little girl had an urgent mission she needed to accomplish. We had a beautiful homebirth. I remember looking down at my little girl and she looked up at me. I picked her up and held her to my chest. We had a few calm moments and I got a beautiful picture to remember them by. Her mission: give me a hug goodbye.
“Psychological Rank” is a term most of us haven’t heard but have probably experienced at one time or another. I first heard a birth professional talk about it recently. The context in which I hear women complain about it most, though they don’t have the words to name it, is when telling their birth story.
I’m finding that one of the most important parts of mothering is taking care of myself. At first, I felt really bad that I would eat before my baby. But I HAD to. If I didn’t eat, there was no mommy milk. So, this is about mothering, eating, and self-care.
