Indigemama: Ancestral Healing
Five years ago right now, I was in labor. I made myself a hearty breakfast, ate in silence, sending every bite to my baby. I swept my home, made myself a batch of tea, and enjoyed the last few hours of "me time" I would have for many, many months. At 10:55pm, I free-birthed my 8lb 12oz son at home, to the sound of indigenous music with my brother and friend in the next room, and my doula and former husband at my side. I unwrapped his umbilical cord from his neck, rubbed his vernix in, tilted him upside down a bit and listened for his first breath. That's what you see in this photo. His first breath. He didn't cry, he just breathed and his little blueish purple body changed to pink.
I'll post my complete birth story in Indigemama's newsletter. Check the link in my profile.
