The Holiness of Birth with Michelle Smith

In this episode, Rabbi Elisheva and Michelle discuss:  

  • How the birth of each child brings with it the birth of a new mother
  • Amazing facts about the placenta (hint: do you know why we have birthday cake on birthday’s?)
  • How experiences in the womb, and of the birth process itself affect us.

Key Takeaways:  

  • Placentas are way cooler than we think!
  • Some believe the baby, umbilical cord, and placenta to be like the holy trinityC
  • Conception, gestation and birth are significant psycho-spiritual experiences in the life journey of parents and children.
