Here I sit on the coach – I’ve been travelling since 6 this morning. On my way home from the 2018 Midwifery Today Conference in Bad Wildbad, Germany.
How do I feel? My cup runs over with Love, compassion, supportive Sisterhood and oxytocic energy!
It’s an amazing thing to stand in a hall of Birthworkers and hear them all singing as one! Especially when they are singing the words that I have written!!!!! Yep, PHYSIOLOGICAL BIRTH THE MUSICAL had its first outing at the cabaret and was very well received!!!! From the impromptu disco dance at the beginning to ‘Love is in the Air ‘ through ‘Birthkeeper ‘ ‘Birth Lightning ‘ ‘The Birth Warp’ and finishing with ‘I am your placenta’ and ‘All you need is love’, it was a proper educational, inspirational and enjoyable experience!
I’m inspired to perform it other places and to start collecting people’s birth bits for each section, which could be collected together to create a kind of ‘birthing vagina monologues!!!!’
And then international physiological birth day!!!!!! The Sky is the limit!!!!!!
Make no mistake, maternal death rates are rising globally and we must find a way to reach the next generation of birthing mothers with our awesome ancient skills!!!!! So I’m on the mission! If you want me to bring my LOVE BIRTH SEX AND CHOCOLATE weekends to your area, read my books, perform my musical, show my birthing dolly and my awesome vagina cushions please get in touch!!!!!
Loads of love, Lara xxxxx
