15 Moments of Breathtaking Thankfulness in Birth

The moment of birth is a moment of exquisite thankfulness. Of breathtaking thankfulness. 

It is a moment of gratitude. Gratitude to our bodies. To our partners. To the care providers who held our hands and answered the questions we cried out in our fear. 

It is a moment of relief. The work is done, and she or he is pressed against our chest. 

I dare say that we’ll never feel relief as sweet as that moment. 

As someone who captures birth stories, I grow more thankful for our bodies after each birth I attend. Our human and imperfect bodies are capable of such  life-altering transformation. They invite us into a story greater than anything our minds could imagine. They allow us to take part in the magical and mysterious creation of life.
