This is a piece done for a friend of mine who had a cesarean.  The flowers around the outside are orange blossoms (which neroli aromatherapy is from) and echinacea to symbolize healing.  The poem, by Karyn Peabody who also had a cesarean, reads as follows:

A Birth Story for Asher

You were not born in the way that I had intended.

We did not meet in the way that I had hoped.

You cried with confusion and hunger.
I cried with confusion and pain.

We returned to our cocoon together.
When we emerged – transformed.

Beautiful and with delight.

For we had fallen in love in the way I had dreamed.
