This is a piece done for a friend of mine who had a cesarean but can be used for anybody healing from a traumatic birth experience. The flowers around the outside are orange blossoms (which neroli aromatherapy is from) and echinacea to symbolize healing. The poem, by Karyn Peabody who also had a cesarean, reads as follows:
A Birth Story for Asher
You were not born in the way that I had intended.
We did not meet in the way that I had hoped.
You cried with confusion and hunger.
I cried with confusion and pain.
We returned to our cocoon together.
When we emerged transformed.
Beautiful and with delight.
For we had fallen in love in the way I had dreamed.
