I really related to her Irish post, where she states that she is avoiding intense spiritual work because of the general belief that unborn babies are very vulnerable to such forces. I did one trance working shortly after finding out I was pregnant. It was part of a drum circle and was very powerful and moving. My spirit guide carried me to a circle of women – my ancestral mothers – who were dancing in a circle. Brighid danced with them over the fire they spun around. I joined them as a mother and a future ancestor. It was very moving and affirming – but I haven’t felt the need to do any more. I’ve done some shallow meditations just to calm myself. I pray. I do divination. I make offerings. Otherwise, I rest.
I am definitely going to be on the lookout for more pregnancy and childbirth lore.
