As I prepare and get closer to my due date, I’m learning about the different stages of labor and pain. I read in a book last week that our endorphins are ten times more potent than morphine for pain. I was so fascinated with the potential our body has to overcome fear and pain. However, that is not to mislead anyone and tell them labor is painless, but I will have my husband to support me, my midwife to guide me, and Benjamin’s alligator onesie ready.
So on this day, I want to say happy mother’s day to all the mothers, especially mine! When she rubs my belly, she reminds me that labor will not be traumatizing, and I look forward to her nurturing oatmeal.
