sacred pregnancy 

I recently received a copy of the new book and pregnancy journal Sacred Pregnancy from author Anni Daulter. As a natural mom and home-birther, it's hard to find a pregnancy journal that isn't hospital centered. This book not only has beautiful and empowering maternity photos throughout, but every chapter invites a mother-to-be to go deeper into her pregnancy and see it as a spiritual journey. I was thrilled when Anni agreed to guest post this week for the blog on what makes a Sacred Pregnancy.

What is a Sacred Pregnancy and why should I want one?

When I was pregnant with my second child, Lotus, I became obsessed with trying to find women I could connect with that knew about the sacredness of birth and the rite of passage process that every mother goes through, but few mark. My pregnancy craving was for that sisterhood that used to exist back in the day when women lived in tribes and pregnancy wisdom was passed down from mother to mother. Not being able to find what I was truly looking for, I realized something was missing in how we go through our pregnancies in this culture, and that sacred mother sisterhood had been buried, not lost, but buried deep in the past and needed to re-surge for all women. Our bodies create babies, and everyone agrees that is a miraculous wonder, but our spirits create souls and we need to know how to handle the process of creating a “whole” person. I truly believe the way to do this is by connecting to ourselves, the process of growing a baby and other wise women.
