BBL 168: Pregnancy and Birth Are a Forgotten Rite of Passage

Pregnancy and birth are a beautiful, forgotten rite of passage. While there are many profound times in a woman’s life, pregnancy and birth offer an incredible opportunity for growth. I talk about why this time is so unique and how you can step into the power and vulnerability it brings to find a new, stronger aspect of yourself - and how that benefits your baby, your family, and your community for years to come.

  • Ponder this: pregnancy and birth are both the most vulnerable and the most powerful times of a woman's life
