As many of us aging adults and parents begin to notice our children growing up, and becoming more independent and self reliant, we suddenly have more time to reflect on how we are feeling; how our bodies are changing and how our energy is becoming more relaxed to put it kindly, non-existent on some of the tougher days.
This woman, who I’ll call Lyla had originally come to see me with her husband about eight years ago, wishing to conceive a child. As of late, she has not only been bringing in herself, her husband and their son for regular “tune up’s and health check up’s; but also her 72 year old mother Joan, who had been in the car with Lyla when they were rear ended.
The months that the woman is privileged with the divine task of carrying her new baby to be, are perhaps the most magical months she will experience in her lifetime. .The continual nuances from conception, through the stages, until delivery and the ultimate new life in the arms of mother, is an experience never forgotten, never repeated in the same way and never is there a more creative and incredible process.
