the truth about birth that I'm not the only one that feels this way about it.

Within this truth, the company I keep is remarkable. Astounding. Powerful.

Seeing, meeting and conversing with Michel Odent, Dr John, Sarah Buckley, Gail Hart, Karen Strange, Laura Shanley, Gloria Lemay - these are just a handful of the people that touched my life deeply this past weekend. Met Ricki Lake briefly (my only question was to ask her how she felt about the Hairspray remake!), saw the Business of Being Born (it was really well done!), and interacted with so many women who believe in women and believe in birth - and aren't afraid to speak about it.

I didn't take any pictures (aside from one with Linda, me and Michel Odent) because I was so busy. Sleep was scarce, down time was not possible.

I am moved beyond words. Moved beyond words. I am not alone.

(One client had her baby while I was away...she had her baby boy this morning and I'm looking forward to seeing them tomorrow!)
