“For me to feel safe during birth and get to where I need to go, it’s crucial to have the right support system,” she wrote. ‘The perfect amount of space, counter-pressure, humor, stillness and people that support my power.” Among those she praised for their help is her “hubby,” who she noted “is the most calm anchor in the room when I feel like climbing the walls.”

“I think that at 34 I have just gained a lot of respect for my body. It’s taken me all of the places I need to go. It’s helped me build a beautiful family. I feel like the older I get, the more confident I get in my own skin. And my body’s been many different shapes and sizes and I’m really just fascinated by, one, being a woman. And two, all the changes that your body can go through throughout your lifetime.”
