About an hour ago Zachari watched her first (water) birth on YouTube. She was mesmerized. She had questions, I answered them and maybe I'm giving her too much credit, but I think she actually got it on some level.
Mom wasn't confident enough to talk about these things with me, nor did she have the knowledge or interest to explore such topics. I will be different. I'm already different. My girl's not even two and she knows all about breastfeeding and breasts, the vulva and vagina, a penis, a womb and now, waterbirth.
I'm proud of her and the woman she is becoming. May she feel well-prepared for this world and for the life she might one day carry inside her.
