from Karen Brody, leading a rejuvenation revolution for women through napping to wake you up so you can change the world. I'm also the playwright of Birth, founder of the BOLD movement to change the culture of birth, creator of Rock Your Birth, and proud mama of two boys who think women rock.
I’m pulsating with excitement and energy to meet all the new
birth visionaries about join our tribe.
Literally, my hands are shaking.
It’s great to feel so much passion, and not-so-great to be pushing my boundaries of what constitutes a normal work day.
I’m holding the tension of the opposites BIG time. (If
you’re a FEAR to FREEDOM Birth Facilitator or were on my Boot Camp for Birth
Visionaries call this week then you’ll get this statement :)
My to-do list is that long, never-ending spiral that means
not everything is going to get done.
So today I decided I needed a break.
That’s when I remembered in all my busyness this week I had not looked
at any of the recent evaluations from certified FEAR to FREEDOM Birth
Facilitators. So I started reading. And
reading. And by the end of the
first few comments I was in tears.
No, I was bawling.
Here are just a few of the tear triggers:
“Being a Childbirth Educator and Doula I knew there was
still a missing ingredient in the empowerment of Pregnant women and the FEAR to FREEDOM training was
– Romy Rapopart
“The F2F tools are such amazing techniques that empower
mothers to identify their needs and then take action towards making their ideal
birth a reality. The big surprise was that along the way the tools helped to
change my life as a birth worker as well!”
– Chloe Raum
“This training came at the perfect time; I left it feeling
more energized and motivated to continue to work towards change. The tools are
transforming. I hope to have more F2F facilitators in my area:) “ - Angela Miki
After 20 minutes of heart-tugging comments I wiped my tears and went back to work.
Changing the Culture of Birth takes work. But if there is
one thing I know it’s that when I hear how my work impacts others it feels
good; so good it warms my heart and brings me to tears.
On Monday I'll be answering questions about FEAR to FREEDOM's training to any of you on the fence about whether to take this life-and-birth changing adventure with us.
