#TransparencyTuesday – Daz’s Story

This is an extremely powerful share I hope you will take a moment to read. -jen

“No one supported my birth choices. The OB already said what I was allowed and not allowed to do. I didn’t matter for months. My voice was overpowered for months. I realized during labor after looking at affirmations and talking to a group of women that I matter. My voice matters to the women who inboxed me who are in abusive relationships. My voice matters to the children who witness their mothers being abused. My voice matters to those women who left their abuser. Most importantly, my voice matters to my children and myself. I went through my labor saying I matter. The last affirmation I looked at before birthing my son is “You had a purpose before anyone else had an opinion.”
