I’m a huge fan of celebrating pregnant women with all that we’ve got. There’s nothing quite as powerful, as beautiful, or as magnificent as growing a new precious life inside of your body– but I think we pregnant women can often feel very vulnerable during our pregnancy journeys. Whether it’s due to fears, hormonal anxiety, everyday aches and pains, or even feelings of insecurity or self-doubt– a woman’s pregnancy can ALSO herald a period during which time we go through a totally out of body experience. During my first pregnancy, for example, I felt super strong physically, and in-tune emotionally with my pregnancy. I did yoga and pilates, walked for miles a day, and was meditating and reading tons in preparation for my daughter’s birth. This time around has been the opposite of that. I’ve felt so out of touch in so many ways as I try desperately to balance my existing child, my relationships, my business, and my own needs. Not to mention I’ve felt less than great about my body at times during this pregnancy. I think most second-time Mamas out there can relate to this!
