If you've been pregnant or been an expectant father, had a baby, become a parent ... who were you before you got pregnant? You were someone. You experienced yourself as someone. Then you fell pregnant and you began to change didn't each of you?
During pregnancy did you sometimes have trouble recognizing yourself? What about The Birth ... did that change you? How about being a parent, were you changed?
One reason so many women and men feel so profoundly changed to the point they do not always recognize who they used to be or who they've become ... we lack skills.
No kidding. Without skills we often don't recognize ourselves when we are put in unusual situations. With skills we move through even the most unusual circumstances knowing who we are by using the skills we have.
There are skills to grow during the 5 phases of pregnancy. Then there are skills to learn to prepare the pregnant body to become a birthing body. Then there are birth and coaching skills to learn for use throughout the whole birthing journey you and your baby take.
So the time before pregnancy is the where the path of your life splits. With skills you'll have a Continuity of Self. Without skills you might not recognize yourself for years to come. Your choice.
