Avoiding Stress in Pregnancy

Avoiding Stress in Pregnancy

This is a topic that I've been pondering since the time when I was pregnant with my Wilder, who is now 4.5 years old. After he was born, I wasn't totally sure if I wanted to have another child or not, but I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't do it again if I was experiencing stress and anxiety in my day to day life. 

A Volcanic Birthing

A Volcanic Birthing

About 70 million years ago, Pele-honua-mea (Pele of the Sacred Earth); the goddess of fire, lightning, wind and volcanoes, left her homeland of Tahiti where she lived with her brothers, sisters, and earth goddess mother Haumea, on a canoe carrying the egg of her unborn youngest sister Hi’iaka. As she journeyed the seas, from land to land, she eventually came upon what we now know as the Hawaiian Islands.
