After I gave birth to my second child via VBAC, I was amazed and empowered to help and support other women who wanted to strive for a better birth. I started a group with my Doula for Women to meet on a monthly bases to support one another. We share birth stories, fears, etc.
Shortly after this group started, I decided to go a little farther with my mission to help women. I decided to become a Doula. (I'm currently still training.) During this time is when my own personal births REALLY hit home. Not only did I need to fully heal from my surgery, but I also needed to heal from my VBAC! My VBAC was amazing, but during the birth, there were some things that happened that I needed to get past. My VBAC definitely helped jump start the healing process of my surgery, however, I was never fully healed. Emotions started surfacing that I couldn't let go of. That was when I decided to turn to my beloved oils for help. I have an oil diffusing necklace (a small wooden "bowl" that I put two drops of oil in) that I started wearing religiously during this time. Every morning, I would add two drops of Young Living's blend Release to the "bowl" and wear it around my neck.
All day, I would breath in the oils. I did this for about a month. During this month, I also worked on myself. We happened to have a birth circle that allowed us to share our favorite parts of our births. This helped me tremendously. I don't think the women of this particular birth circle will ever realize that they were truly part of my healing that night.
I cannot tell you how much this has helped me. I feel 100% healed from both of my births. I have let go of (Released) emotions that I had buried. When I started to learn about birth, when I started to trust birth, my buried emotions started to surface. In order to fully release these emotions, I used Release!
