I open at the close: a poem (Closing the Bones Massage Ceremony)
Here’s a poem I wrote inspired after an incredible experience - a Closing the Bones Massage Ceremony, performed by the extraordinary Laura Stocks, Doula, Mother, Hero, who runs Stripped Back Birth. There is no-one I would trust more to be my right hand woman in birth.
I open at the Close
Rock me sweetly
Rock me gently
Release, restore, rebirth
I am mother
I am whole
I am made new
I am me
Amo, amas, amat, a mother, a me
I’ll write a comprehensive blog about Closing the Bones soon, but for now for the “what is it” questions check out their website here.
