Note from Amy: This poem was the inspiration for the second piece in my c-section series entitled “Cocoon”.  Thank you to Karyn for allowing her beautiful words to become so meaningful to so many women who have experienced birth trauma.

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.
