We added a 2nd calm birth class in April due to demand ❤️ our next class with openings is April 22:) message or comment if your interested in more information or if you would like to sign up :) So excited to be able to teach two groups of parents in April 💕💕
"Birth is something that’s so often alighted. Even in movies today—birth in movies today is exactly like fucking used to be before HBO. It’s a woman in a sheet, a little bit of sweat, she looks fulfilled but tired. No! Twenty-nine hours of labour does not look like that! But we see that over and over again. In a way this is the opposite of that: everything unmasked, the dirty, slutty, gothic side of what birthing would have been like." Playwright Hannah Moscovitch told us about the real-life stories behind her play What a Young Wife Ought to Know, on until April 7 at @crowstheatre.

So moved by these words from @midwife_teree of the work she does. She is one of two black midwives in the DFW area and her work is truly an act of grace - Humbled doesn't quite do descriptive justice to the posture of my heart, but my God. You've called me to this work of being on the receiving end of Your heritage......and I am humbled. Time and time again I am enamored with the way You collide purpose and promise....and the way You make grace and mercy dance with truth to the rhythm of your very heartbeat. Your creativity woos me.....and it is that same creativity that echos Your pursuit of me. Endless. Your creativity is endless. You are always doing a new thing, in and out and throughout time. Thank You for breathing, and for allowing me to catch your breath. You are good. And You're even better than that.
