The Guardian


a defender, protector, or keeper.
caretaker, steward

My body was her guardian for 9 months. My body is now the new life’s guardian – my new child’s guardian – a defender, protector and keeper of the baby’s body and personal space. Who/what is my body’s guardian? This is what I’m figuring out, the symbol of what I’m building.

Where do personal boundaries exist? What is a safe space? What boundaries are needed to create a safe space?
