New Birth Company’s 100th birth will be any day…wow it has happened so quickly ! We want to celebrate this milestone by honoring the lucky mama and her family with a few gifts…check out the growing list below.
While we plan for this important moment in our history, I am thinking about birth 99 and birth 101. All of our mamas, families and babies are equally precious in our eyes…how do we honor them too? One way I reconcile this is to consider we are all standing on the shoulders of others that have come before us. To celebrate birth #100 is to also celebrate the moms who gave birth before we were open. The moms that convinced their insurance company to invite us into their networks but didn’t get the benefit themselves. The midwives and families who helped start the Topeka birth center 30 years ago and the mothers that gave birth on the very trails that gave our community its name. Its a little overwhelming to think about all the women and men that have worked over the years so that women can have better birth choices….Thank You !
What we can do is count our blessings and pay them forward. Spread the word, share your story, contribute to Friday Mama’s group. Everyone has a part to play to keep lifting up natural childbirth and birth centers in your commmunity. Whose shoulders are next?
As Cathy can be heard in the birth center hallway before a birth, “let’s have a parttttttyyyyyyyyyy !!”
