Creative Writing for About Logo and Content Editing
Melissa is a Hypnobirthing Practitioner who is always a joy to work with. I've helped her write her incredible birth story, edit her ebook, and provide the copy for her beautiful and inspiring cowrie shell logo. Here is the Oceanic Logo description I wrote for her: Like waves, labour is powerful. Like a cowrie shell, women are strong. We are fashioned and formed to endure labour as a shell endures the ocean tide—with trust. Instead of resisting the current, the cowrie embraces the tide. It is easy to fear what we do not know, especially if what we do not know appears wild and powerful beyond measure. But birth reveals a deeper reality, which is this: You Are Wild. You Are Power. You are Wildly Powerful. With that knowledge, there is nothing left to fear. Hypnobirthing helps women tap into their power, their strength, and their beauty. The cowrie shell is the symbol I chose as my logo to remind my clients that everything they need is already contained within. Birthing their child is coded into the very essence and fibre of their being. The folds of the vulva are found in the cowrie’s curves. Our feminine strength reflected in the beautiful sheen and resilient shell. The truth of our innate nature revealed in this small gift which rises from the mysterious, infinite, depths of the sea.
