This guestpost is by Leanne Gypsy, amazing woman who has traveled to remote corners of the world and witnessed first hand the beautiful diversity of humanity. We hope to hear more from her in the future.
From when we first decided to bring a life into our world, I began meditate on what I imagined pregnancy and motherhood to mean to me. I dragged my mom down memory lane. I read books. I first visited, then avoided, somewhat hysterical pregnant woman websites. The most meaningful images though, were of real women in my mind’s eye, snapshots of life from so many countries I’ve visited.
