When we hear the word “womb,” most of us think of a pregnancy. It reminds us of the developing baby, so tender, so dependent, so innocent. We treasure the beauty of how the mother nourishes that baby within herself, cherishing the child before he or she is ever born. Protecting, comforting, and feeding it.
And on delivery day, contractions take over and compel the mother to give birth, allowing that beautiful treasure that was hidden within her to come forth and be the blessing and reward that a new baby brings to a family.
