I have been browsing through my books on childbirth and came across a passage that I feel transcends women preparing for labor and delivery. I plan to keep these words in mind as I move forward in all things and I hope you will too.
“Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic… Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”
