You don't need the birth of a child for a new rhythm to start as any transition (major or minor) will do that too. Regardless of whether you planned this transition or not a new rhythm can be uncomfortable, intense, and rock your world. I don't want to sound trite when I say it's the nature of transitions to do just that. It reminds me of what's referred to as "transition" during birth.
During this time, when a laboring woman is unmedicated, she may say "I don't want to do this anymore" or "I want to go home now". When I attended births (200+), I would tell her in an excited voice: "This means your baby is coming soon!" Her affect would change in that moment and she'd return to the process of birthing reassured in her ability to do this.
Is there something you're gestating or nurturing that's just waiting to be born?
Ask yourself these important questions---what do I need to support me during this "birthing"? Who do I need to reassure me, to let me know when I'm almost there or that I can do it? I don't know about you but I can't always do that alone and I sure can't do it over a long period of time. I have many circles of people who are in what I call my tribes and they are the people I ask for support and help. It can be in the form of coaching, talking over a cup of coffee, energy work, a hug, a card in the mail (sorry, email doesn't do it like having a card in your hand!).
Because this is my children's birth-day month, I'm reminded of my friend, Barbara, who is also a doula. She was the support person for my eldest child as we were having a homebirth and we needed someone who could exclusively focus on him. It was around 5am and I'd been in labor since 7:11 pm the night before. My son and husband were asleep so Barbara was with me. I remember saying I didn't know what else to do to birth this baby! After she gave me a homeopathic remedy she gently stroked my back and I began crying. I was surrendering to the process with her gentle support. Barbara was holding the space for me to transition into whatever it was I needed to be so my little one would be born. Her skills as a doula and her friendship were so reassuring. 40 minutes later my baby was born.
