Silly Snowfalls and Bubbly Births

by Courtney on February 16, 2008

In Patagonia.
And, as is typical, it is gone today.
Last year we got one snow, in February, same this year. It was rather pretty, although more muddy than anything.
On another note, one of my best friends had her baby boy this morning!
I love numerology, and I couldn’t help but notice all the 1′s and 7′s associated with his birth – he was born at 7:17, on the 16th, which adds to a 7.  He was born in 2008, which adds to a 1.
An at home birth with a midwife, she had.  And what a totally different alternative to birth in a hospital – just her, her midwife with whom she has built a relationship with over the last 9 months of regular visitation, and a few loved ones.
At home, in her own comfortable, familiar setting…
Quite the alternative to a hospital, if you ask me…
And while we’re on this subject, a movie called Birth As We Know It’ is supposed to be absolutely fantastic.
Ironically, a whole group of people were watching it the night that my friend started labor.
While I have yet to see it, many people in the Tree community totally love it, and highly enjoy sharing it with anyone new who comes through.  The interesting thing is it seems that everyone loves it – it’s not like the people who are watching it are the people wanting to have kids, necessarily.
So, that movie comes highly, highly recommended!  Check it out!

Just wanted to add that “Birth as we know it” is a wonderful film. It totally recreates the crazy image of birth as a horrendous experience in a sanitized hospital with a woman screaming on her back, to one that is natural, sensual, and sacred. I’d highly recommend it!

I saw that movie and I wish everyone everywhere could see it. Love, love, love it!
