Unfolding mothers

I am listening to a beautiful series of messages on BBC radio 4 - Womens’ HourĀ  ………….it has reminded me of something I read somewhere that spoke of all the mothers that have carried and birthed babies, a long line of mother and daughter and mother and daughter going way back. It encouraged the pregnant mother to think of how many women it has taken to get to her, standing here, with her baby in her belly, about to be a mother herself.Sometimes we focus so much on the birth, we pick it to pieces and plan for what we want, get consumed by fear and caught up in debate that we forget to revel in the wonder of birth and what it is to be a mother.
