E2: My Postpartum Story, Visions of a Whole Postpartum, and Daughters of Motherhood

E2: My Postpartum Story, Visions of a Whole Postpartum, and Daughters of Motherhood How might your motherhood experience be different if… the day your baby was born, a woman who loves you, who had been waiting and preparing for weeks, for the call, picked up her bags and came to your home, baring food, dishes  prepared, broths, herbs, teas, warm compresses, books to read to you, and her quiet yet reverent love for your sacred mama-baby tent that is now your life. She brings a wrap for your belly, helps you to get to and from bed to bathroom, brings you water, feeds you food, strokes your hair, checks on you even in the middle of the night, cleaned so you didn’t have to, helped you prepare a yoni steam, massaged your whole body with oil, held babe when you needed to shower, sat with you while you cried of both joy and terror, comforted your worries, helped you gain confidence in your nursing, and with her presence, let you know that you are ok, with her eyes, told you that you are held, and with her hands, let you know that you are not alone.  How might it be different if you had someone to be with you, just to care for you, to be a presence for you and with you, for a long while?  How might that change your experience of entering into motherhood? Listen in for this podcast, where I share a few poems and my story about the postpartum journey I made in September of 2016.  Music by Bridget Law, lead violinist of the...

Late Summer: The Season of Nourishment

  Late Summer: The Season of Nourishment Element: Earth  Emotion: Sympathy/Worry Archetype: Mother Color: Yellow/Orange Yin Organ: Spleen Yang Organ: Stomach Energy Imprint: Nourish yourself.

Satisfaction. Security. Safety. Belonging. Tribe. Root. All of these words fit into this season. The Stomach and the Spleen are the organ systems that govern this season and will be active guiding you and evolving who they are to you. The stomach is the organ that breaks down the the food we eat and begins the rotting and digestion process and the spleen is the organ that is responsible for taking that nourishment and distributing it throughout the body. It is involved in making blood cells as well, which is vital for delivery of oxygen and nutrients to every nook and cranny inside of us. These organ systems are so delicately connected to the nourishment we receive from mother earth through the food we eat, and even our own mother as we were sustained by her milk as babies. Anxiety and Worry are things that in Chinese Medicine stem from a...
