Beautiful book to guide you through your pregnancy., 13 Mar. 2014
Imagine that your average pregnancy guide is the literary equivalent of having your midwife or consultant in your pocket. The sacred Pregnancy book and journal is the equivalent of carrying with a circle of women, who are all nurturing you and lifting you up in exaltation. These women are your friends and family , as well as your ancient ancestors, who encourage you to find your own birthing beauty and wisdom within.
This is a book to enjoy and savour, one which will guide you on your birth journey, with each of the 40 weeks of pregnancy having a theme of attached to it. But not your average themes such as analgesia in labour, or what to pack in your hospital bag, but themes which encourage you to search deep within yourself as you enter motherhood. Themes such as Birth art, Forgiveness, Empowerment and Sisterhood.
The poetic language and the beautiful accompanying images remind us of the sanctity and the emotional rite of passage that can and should be. Whilst the weekly journal prompts, creative activities and music pairings, encourage expectant mamas to make time to honour themselves over the course of their pregnancy.
For me, the Sacred Pregnancy book, brings us back to the essence of birth, with the mama and baby at the centre.
A wonderful book, not to be missed.
