This cd is meant to inspire Jewish mothers and Jewish mothers- to-be. This cd is truly a dream come true to me. I have always loved writing my own music and singing. Throughout the years I have played around with how to use this talent that Hashem has given me for Am Yisrael. I feel that my talents are best served when I am impacting people like with special evenings of singing and inspirational stories and being a music therapist.
When pregnant with my first child I became very excited by the idea of an inspirational birth experience, one in which the birth drew me closer to Hashem. I read different books and created a personal cd of music I liked to accompany the birth process.For my second birth I wrote some songs which my husband and I sang in the earlier stages of labor. I found the experience of writing songs and having songs relevant to what I was feeling made the birth experience much more meaningful. I also felt that the preparation I did beforehand had a tremendous impact on how I viewed motherhood, pregnancy and my new child.
I created this cd when expecting my third child. As far as I know there is nothing quite like this yet created and I felt that I am not the only one who could benefit from a compilation of songs all meant to inspire and prepare Jewish mothers for this great journey. It is really with endless סייעתא דשמייא that I was able to create this cd so quickly. I felt a real push from Hashem to do it and seized the moment, energy and burst of creativity to do it. I pray that these songs will serve as an inspiration to all of you to love yourselves more, get ready for the process of having a child and once you have a child, embracing motherhood with more energy and excitement.
