My, How He Has Grown!

By Chaya Aronson | November 22, 2013 | Comments Off on My, How He Has Grown!

It seems like just yesterday, he was a squishy little baby who could barely hold his little head up. Time means nothing. Moments are hours, and hours are moments. Time passes so quickly, except at night when we wake up every hour, and each time I think, it must be morning; surely he has slept…

I feel blessed that my little man took to nursing right away, I produce plenty of milk, and he is robust and healthy. For all of this and so much more, I am grateful. He changes so much everyday, it is incredible. In the very beginning, he figured out the breast crawl pretty quickly, though…

Child Centered Attention

By Chaya Aronson | September 12, 2013 | Comments Off on Child Centered Attention

I have more compassion than ever for those who permanently live with a handicap. I was leaving the supermarket the other day, and as I was walking out the door, someone else was coming in. I mistakenly assumed that he would move aside for a moment so I could get through with my crutches, but…

Irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation patterns

By Chaya Aronson | September 9, 2013 | Comments Off on Irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation patterns

Many women over the course of their lives experience irregular menstrual cycles and, because of this, cannot tell when they will ovulate. This becomes particularly problematic for women when they are trying to become pregnant. The menstrual cycle is complicated. We might assume that it only involves the ovaries and uterus, but actually, it is…

Bloodbuilding

By Chaya Aronson | September 2, 2013 | Comments Off on Bloodbuilding

Life is full of the practice of releasing our attachments to outcomes. I was so attached to birthing my baby at home in the tub. The water felt so good, so I was shocked and saddened in the moment when my midwife said, “Honey, we are going to have your baby in the hospital.” We…

Shapeshifting

By Chaya Aronson | August 13, 2013 | Comments Off on Shapeshifting

After a womb~an gives birth, our society considers it a compliment to say, “Wow, I can hardly tell you just had a baby! You lost that weight so FAST!” This is a symptom of how we downplay how big this experience is. The value in our society is placed on how quickly we achieve our…

Elimination Communication Part 1

By Chaya Aronson | August 3, 2013 | Comments Off on Elimination Communication Part 1

The last few weeks, we have begun our journey with Elimination Communication. We have a little potty for our little man, and we pay attention to his signals that he has to go to the bathroom. We respond by putting him on his potty and cueing him with sounds. When we think we has to…

Mimicry

By Chaya Aronson | July 15, 2013 | Comments Off on Mimicry

As far as my baby is concerned, he and I are still one being. No one else in the world can provide him with the feelings of safety and comfort than I can. Every time I look at his belly button, I see the place that connected us, and feel the aliveness and vibrancy of…

Smiling Sun

By Chaya Aronson | July 8, 2013 | Comments Off on Smiling Sun

Tomorrow will be four weeks since I have given birth to my Sun! I am healing from major blood loss, a second degree vaginal tear, and the emotional loss of not being able to hold him for ten whole minutes after he emerged. I am healing well, and feeling the bliss and joy of this…

Bless That Belly: Self Massage for the Pregnant Belly

By Chaya Aronson | March 7, 2013 | Comments Off on Bless That Belly: Self Massage for the Pregnant Belly

What a gift and a blessing to feel life growing within! Unfortunately, with this gift, comes some physical discomfort; anxiety related to upward pressure from the baby onto the diaphragm, heartburn, indigestion, round ligament pain, to name a few. We are acculturated to believe that we must live with these discomforts as part of the…
