on motherhood

A friend of mine asked me to answer some questions for a motherhood project she's working on... I so enjoyed answering her questions, I thought I'd share them.  - 
What would you recommend to a friend who wants to get pregnant as far as consciously preparing/getting ready?Things to do, think, try, eat, etc.  I guess the main thing I would recommend is not to obsess about it. For me, the thing that was most useless (and hardest) was to let go of the anxiety and stress about GETTING pregnant and wanting it so badly to happen. I know it's so much easier said than done, but being stressed out really does not help and it made so much of the process harder and more emotional.So, that is one thing. I think the best way to do that is to find ways to calm yourself so that you can accept the present for what it is - neither good nor bad but just, reality. Meditation, walks by the sea, quality time with your partner. Any of those are good ways to really just enjoy being in the now. Als…
