“Though pregnancy and birth bring us back to the center of our bodies, the children we mother continue to call us back to the center of our lives. If we heed this call, back to the center, we not only have more energy upon which to make our mothering, but we also contact this beautiful and wild part of our feminine nature. Returning to the center and living from here is what I refer to as ‘wild mothering,’ or extending the flow of your creative energy beyond basic caregiving into the making of a soul-filled life,” writes Tami Lynn Kent, in her new book titled Wild Mothering: Finding Power, Spirit, and Joy in Birth and a Creative Motherhood.

“Within these pages,” she continues, “I have included the essential tools to restore your center and mother from this place. There are resources to holistically heal your body after birthing, for both for the initial postpartum phase and the long-term postpartum effects. Based on my background in physical medicine and the practice of Holistic Pelvic CareTM I have developed, I share the information that is vital to caring for your pelvic bowl and restoring your radiant form. I also include groundbreaking energy medicine that I have created for accessing the healing potential of birth, even long after a child is born, and using this potent creative energy for life.”

Kent’s book is so beautiful because it doesn’t trade one set of complications for another. It encourages new mothers to embrace their new role in life, while making time and providing ample guidance for how to care for themselves after such a beautiful but considerable undertaking.

This is enhanced by Kent’s soulful, unapologetically visceral prose. Things are written straightforwardly, but not at the cost of playful and warm evocation. After all, as Kent unapologetically shows, there is a spiritual and energetic aspect to the healing processes she practices and swears by. A mixture of altruistic and out-and-out spiritualistic philosophies is in order. It’s something part and parcel, symbolically speaking, to the joys of motherhood itself — not just as an experience, but as a concept.

“This book is not a call to do more; it is a guide for accessing the potential you already contain. In my practice, I teach women to use energy-sensing tools and centering meditations that I use in my own home to align the energy field for my family. These practices address the real stresses of mothering and transform the experience into a creative practice for cultivating power, spirit, and joy,” she writes. “By learning to sense the deeper layers of spirit that awaken within your core when you bring a soul into being, you can meet directly with this mystery.

Working with your child’s birth energy and its connection to your own body will not only assist the birth process but add potency to your mothering. If you have a mis- carriage or birth loss, connecting with the spirit of your child will unfold the blessings from this touch to your womb.”
