In the fall issue of Pathways magazine there was an article called “The Genius of the Unborn Child by Sarah Farrant. I enjoyed this poem in the article’s sidebar:
The Vital Truth
Nature needs no help
just no interference
It’s best not to interfere with
what is a natural process.
Do you help the grass to grow?
Do you help the sun to rise?
Why is it that people feel compelled
to help a baby grow?
Babies know what to do every time,
all the time, in just the right sequence
and at just the right time to allow the expression of
their limitless potential.
Being pregnant feels like magic and I marvel each day at the unfolding of this whole process without my conscious intention or effort. Really incredible!
This pregnancy has felt more magical for me because I have felt the baby move so much more than I ever did with my first. In many ways it is helping Tim as well since we didn’t feel Kaz move much with the placenta in the front.
