I spent a wonderful day this week in Woodstock, NY. It was a beautiful drive through the Catskills, with the remainder of the big winter storm still visible with snow covering the ground. With blue skies, the sunshine glistened on the rolling hills as I listened to the music of Linda Worster and reflected on the many blessings in my life. Just one month before I became a grandmother. I had the great honor of being with my son and daughter-in-law for their long labor and birth of my grandson – Photis, The wise and gentle midwifery care of Lonnie Morris and Donna Tabas and the doula and photography support of Judith Halek nurtured us all and provided the care that was needed to transform a long, challenging and difficult labor into ecstasy as my son, with Lonnie’s gentle guidance caught his son, as we all welcomed him to the world and into our hearts.
As the town of Woodstock came into sight, my mind was filled with the many places our documentary has traveled since it’s release, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, United Arab Emirates, Holland, England, Scotland, Denmark, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Switzerland, France, Poland, Israel, Mexico, Chili, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Trinidad, U.S and more than I can name here…. I felt the warm embrace of the many people who were touched by our film, the families who shared their intimate moments and the many messages the experts and other’s share. As I rode down the windy roads I was filled with gratitude. It is a very special time as I embrace the changes in my life, a right of passage that allows me to reflect on where I have come from and to look at the road ahead. I look forward to continuing to travel with you and welcome your reflections on how Orgasmic Birth, has touched your life or your thoughts.
