Managing Motherhood in a New World ~ Guest Post

In 2006 as I was awaiting the birth of my first child and eager to continue my self-exploration and self-awakening, I was introduced to a set of tools and exercises that would change my life forever.  I was introduced to the Avatar Course by some dear friends who had recently attended.  I attended the course even though I was due to give birth within a couple of weeks!  Thankfully I finished the course without going into labor!

The Home Birth of Basha Maple

  BY NICOLE DONALD · MARCH 19, 2015 Our intention for the birth of our daughter was to have a peaceful, low-intervention, home birth on the day that our baby would choose for herself. I previously had one hospital birth and a birthing center/water birth, while my husband had experienced all three of his children’s births at a birthing center—which left us very excited to share our first home birth together. I had been having intense prodromal labor almost everyday since 36 weeks so we were anticipating our daughter might arrive early....
