I am going back to school. I have my undergraduate degree in Business Administration, and I have a Master of Architecture degree as well. After graduating with those degrees, I became a mother. Then I had another child, and another, and another. I was empowered in my pregnancies and births. I birthed at home, with my husband and my midwife. I labored where I wanted, how I wanted; ate when I wanted. I owned my body throughout the entire process. No one told me how to move, when to move, when to push. No one entered my body with their hand, or a tool without my consent. No one “monitored” a monitor, listening to a piece of machinery instead of my words. When my babies came through me into this world, they slipped into the loving hands of their father. They were held. They didn’t cry, they weren’t cold. They were scooped onto my chest; they stayed warm; they felt safe. They nursed contentedly and drifted off to sleep. All were strong, and healthy as infants. They were attached and bonded; having known nothing but safety from the beginning. There are so few women, so few children in our country that know this type of empowerment and peace. I am meant to help women all across our nation learn what it means to own their birth; to own their body. With my Medical Degree, I will help women discover the power that lies within themselves to own birth.
