[An attempt to capture the ephemeral moments that quickly arrive and fleet as hastily… No words, just moments to glance upon, moments to be remembered as memories transition.]

Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were big things. – Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

My Birth Story

Pregnancy and birthing hold a very special place in each woman’s heart. For most, their pregnancies represent an important time in their life; a time for personal growth, a time for interpersonal growth, a time to appreciate life, a time to be amazed with our bodies and innate capabilities. Birthing, likewise, represents a hugely significant experience. Some women are ambivalent about their birthing experience – they were pregnant, it was wonderful, their baby arrived, and they are and have been raising their baby. For some, their birth experience is an empowering experience; they spent nine months nurturing a developing new life, spent countless hours, days, weeks, preparing for their birth weighing the pros and cons of where to birth, how to birth, and with whom.

For less than the cost of a large box of wipes (about $15), we’ve made some home-made wipes and wipes sauce to use at home (we’ll probably stick with disposables while we’re out and about… I hate traveling with Biohazards on deck).
