"You are a #midwife, assisting at someone else's birth. Do good without show or fuss. Facilitate what is happening rather than what you think ought to be happening. If you must take the lead, lead so that the mother is helped, yet still free and in charge. When the baby is born, the mother will rightly say, #WeDidIt ourselves!" -An except from Tao Te Ching (meaning: "The Way") on the role of a midwife back in 4th century China. 📹: @shanchin
This is one of my favorite quotes about the role of a midwife! What's yours?

Most days of being busy all I’ve noticed is a feeling of being full and bloated, or that one of my usual pair of pants are starting to fit differently. But recently I’ve started to notice a slight curve in my belly and today I was certain for the first time that I felt the little life inside of me move when I finally had the time to be still myself. Most days it feels surreal and I am reminded that it’s real when people that know ask how I’m feeling and how many weeks I am again. Believe it or not I am 19 weeks pregnant and growing. Thankful for the blessing I take with me everywhere I go and need to become more mindful of #19weekspregnant#lovemyjackrussell
