Every Baby is an amazing journey. When they are born we are to celebrate and honor their journey too. They are new life, new energy and new experiences for everyone they meet.
When you are pregnant, take time to just sit and listen to your baby. Talk to your baby and just be with them. Away from all the distractions and hubub of life. They are in an ecosystem that is perfectly made for them. It is surrounded by a mothers body and then by the world.
When they are born, keep them close, stay inside, better yet your bedroom for a few days. This world is so big for them. Remember they have to do a lot of transitioning from the womb to out here. Gravity, temperature, digestion, heart and lungs redirected, pooping, touch and communicating their needs. All the first day you are born. Infact, many in the first hour. That is a lot to integrate.
Celebrate who they are, who you are now as a family.
We appreciate all of you near and far away for all that you do with your babies and children.
