Joining Soulemama today for (this moment): A Friday ritual. A single photo -
no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

There are times in life when everything seems to happen at once. Do you know what I am talking about?
First of all there still is this rather newish baby, roles have changes, days and nights too. Then we had a lovely little wedding, I changed my last name (imagine all the paper work), we had to apply for social wellfare which is even more paper work. And, the day we came home from our short trip to Danemark I found out that I was given a place in a doula training class at Intuitive Childbirth that I had applied for. So, so exhiting!!! I am becoming a doula. But, wow, that is going to be so much work, we have to read several books, write essays, attend three birthes, two preparation classes, do local research etc.
I can't wait to dive into all this.
Now the first task is to master the pumping of milk for Maya so I can stay away long enough the actually attend birthes and classes.
I have also started a facebook page for my "business" and made cards (with my new name, yeah!) so that I have better chances of finding women who need me. You can find me here: Geburtswege gestalten.

"The most difficult part of birth is...afterwards...when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labor pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy then the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred." Joy Kusek LCCE

Don't get me wrong, we are mainly having a good time here, Aaron is the best big brother I could wish for and Maya likes sleeping at night. It is just the adjusting that takes time. Especially transportation, shopping and the like is complicated without a car. But, we are getting there:
And tomorrow we are off for our first big trip up to Denmark. Can you hear the bells?
