But the end result is the love of our lives. We begin" - Marianne Williamson

"According to our Lamaze instructor that winter, my body was supposed to self-anesthetize during labor and delivery, allowing me to remain wholly alert for the miracle of birth. She assured our class of hefty, plural-bodied women that our cervix muscles would become naturally numb as they swelled and stretched, and deep breathing would turn the final explosions of pain into manageable discomfort.
