A Handful of Hope
(actual size 11" X 17")
"If we hope to create a non-violent world where respect and kindess replace fear and hatred. We must begin with how we treat each other at the beginning of life. For that is where our deepest patterns are set. From these roots grow fear and alienation ~or love and trust."

Envision A World
(actual size 12.5" X 18.25")
Envision a world where...
...we know that how we treat the child is how the child will treat the world.
...each child's nature is cared for as one would care for a garden, so it can unfold at that child's own rhythm and pace.
Every child is wanted, welcomed, loved, and valued. Every family is prepared for and supported in practicing the art and science of nurturing children. Adults respect children and honor childhood. Children joyfully participate in the vital life of family and community. Dynamic, resilient life-honoring cultures flourish.
Let's create this world ~ Solutions abound, Education is key, Action is essential.

Childbirth is an experience
In a woman’s life
That holds the power
To transform her
These powerful gates
~In her own way~
All the generations of women
Who walk with her
She is never alone

Excerpts from the poem:
Giving birth and being born—
These most important journeys
Shape each of us
Deeply and forever…
Create for us a sanctuary
And be guardians of that space.
Expecting all will go well.
Holding safe the energy—
Be ready to act, but only if needed…
Welcome us in awe as each of us emerges
Tender, raw, weary—splendid and triumphant.
Step back. Give us our first exquisite hour.
Two are born
Behold and Marvel—
Birth. Breath. Love. Life.

Be Well, Be Happy—
Create a Life You Desire
Want a wonderful birth and healthy baby?
Your best insurance is to enter labor in fine health.
Begin now—ideally before you wish to conceive.
21 days of repetition can make or break a habit.
Ask questions! Whenever you do not understand something or do not believe what you are hearing, seeing or reading, find someone to ask for information. Don’t stop asking until you feel right
Let the journey and this baby teach you
Talk to your baby Babies feel everything, even in the womb! You are their entire world.
Tune out bad news—Notice how you feel seeing negative or violent images (like TV news) or hear scary birth stories. Your baby feels everything! Please turn off the TV 1 hour before bed and keep it off waking up.
