In order for me to feel safe during childbirth and to get to where I need to go, having the right support system is crucial. The perfect amount of space, back pressure, humor, stillness, and people who support my power. My husband was the quietest anchor in the room when I felt like climbing walls and my little Molly was an amazing doula who sat down with me when I needed to be calm and quiet. She really enjoyed the fact that I was sitting on dog pads because I had lost the water hours before! “
” Well done to all mothers ”
The singer then confides that her own mother was there, to prepare “All snacks” and above all, see his daughter “Bring him a new grandchild on earth”.

From pregnancy to cesarean section, through childbirth in the hospital or at home, breastfeeding and the education of these responsible little beings so that they become citizens of the world, confident and kind. It is completely devouring. A tedious, magical, miraculous adventure … So bravo to the all-powerful mothers. You move the mountains every day. “
