Ring of Fire
Ring of Fire- Crowning is often referred to as the “ring of fire” in the birthing process. That moment when the baby's head becomes visible in the birth canal after fully dilated. The very portal of the divine and the ethereal- the intersection of the physical world and the spiritual and the point of origin for every human being- a continuation of cycle of life handed by ourancestors. We often speak of motherhood's magical moments, yet ignore the hardships and challenges of such creation. A birthing parent not only births their child but births themselves and their new identity. This is a celebration of the light and dark of becoming a parent.
