Whale Birth

There is an amazing video of a whale birthing her calf in the news. Watching her, I was struck at how easily and fluidly her baby slid from her body. Her heavily pregnant body moved gracefully while her posterior undulated to move baby down and out. She was doing 'pelvic rocks' to move her calf!

Wow. I have never seen anything like that.
Watching that helped me put a bit of perspective back into my journey and worries of planning my birth.
Thank you.
