Birthing a coaching business is just like birthing a kid. Don't believe me? Check out these quotes from the Godmother of Midwives herself - Ina May Gaskin. I was one blissed out soon to be mama almost ten years ago when I was devouring Ina May's books. And I just about lost a mucous plug when I found out Ina May Gaskin was coming to speak in our town.
The venue was in the basement of a church just a short walk from our house. Which was wild because nothing ever happened in our neighbourhood. And here's my natural birthing hero speaking just a short walk away.
I remember that night time walk in so vividly. At that point I was carefully savoring every moment Craig and I were spending together knowing that things shall soon be very different.
As I waddled into the church I saw many mamas I got to know from the attachment parenting playgroup I recently joined, the Birthing From Within workshop series we were halfway through and at the front of the room, with feathers dangling from her Princess Lea buns, was (sigh) Ina May herself.
I feel reading her words helped me deeply enjoy two beautiful home births but, as you'll see, also my online coaching biz.
