And the Winner is…

Congratulations to Shoshanah Blaiss, who won this week’s Birth Goddess charm giveaway. Shoshanah shared what gave her confidence during her birth experience:

“The thing that gave me the most confidence during my recent (May 14) VBAC was knowing a lot of women had my back! The mamas of ICAN of Atlanta, the members of the yahoo groups for HBAC and Hypnobabies, and the women who participated in my blessingway were all very much present during the amazing and transformative experience. And, of course, my two awesome doulas had a lot to do with it as well! They all believed in me, and it allowed me to believe in myself,” she says.

As part of the contest, a half-dozen more mamas shared their birth confidence-builders, too, from ipod playlists to Ina May’s amazing books.

Shoshanah, RN, BSN, CLC, is a Baby Steps Educator & Lactation Counselor in Atlanta, and she has plans to attend midwifery school. When she found out she won the birth goddess charm giveaway, she said “I’m so excited! I almost never enter contests because the prizes aren’t worth my effort, but I just had a wonderful VBAC and so this charm will mean so much!”

Here’s wishing Shoshanah great health and abundance as she pursues her midwifery dreams!
