Each child is a blessing and each belly is beautiful. That is the way doulas feel about it. Each belly will give way to a birth story. The pregnant belly is a temporary beauty. It is our baby’s first nest. We get to feel the stirring of our child’s kicks and prods. We get to feel fertile and voluptuous. It feels like spring-time. Pictures can take us back to that memory. A baby nursing can remind you why the journey was so important.
