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.
- 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.
