Every woman that becomes pregnant arrives at this special moment in her life with a body that is uniquely her own, as well as with a mind and personal history of her own. Some women come into pregnancy with a body that they love being in, whereas some begin with something a little less than love; perhaps a strong like for her legs, or another part of the body that she is proud to highlight. Some women enter pregnancy with a long-standing shame around aspects of their bodies, discontent with their weight or shape; a little too much of this, and not enough of that. Some come with bodies honored and loved, some with bodies that have experienced abuse and domination by others, or by their own means.
But, no matter how you arrived at your pregnancy, you are immediately part of something tremendous. You are doing magical work, you and your body. Your body is made sacred with every moment of this shared journey between you and your child.
