Doula metaphors

Doula metaphors follow me everywhere these days. I want to start tracking them. The other night this popped out from Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ book, Untie the Strong Woman:

“Gestation by ego’s measure is most often too long. But by soul’s measure, the length of the waiting and making within, before what is being created shows on the outside, is ever just right.”
