Birth Story

Affiliate Disclosure | in Motherhood | by | with 3 Comments

[info_box]Hey mamas! After Micah was born I found myself reading his story over and over, but Katie’s sat untouched in a dusty corner. It’s was a “just the facts, ma’am” catalog of timestamps and pushing techniques . . . pretty much a total yawner. Now, I LOVED her birth, it was just that my story didn’t do it justice. So here is my second attempt: Elvis and Smurfs included for dramatic effect :) [/info_box]

In My Bedside Table . . .

There is a calender with your conception date circled on it. That is a fact. Doing the potty dance in the Walgreens checkout line while holding a pregnancy test was just a formality . . . I knew you were there three days in when I ate an entire jar of olives and drank the juice!

    OH! I have never read this! I love it! There is nothing more empowering, but simultaneously humbling than birthing your child!

    I searched your blog to find your story! What a strong birth warrior you were! Beautiful story. I also love that you were aware that the quality of one’s nutrition has direct affect on the quality of their amniotic sac. Mine actually didn’t break till Zoe’s head fully emerged. Having the baby born in the Caul is known as a good sign – supposed to mean that they’ll be seeers.

    Beautiful story! VERY similar story to my own Winter Solstice baby who was stuck so long he ended up coming on the 23rd…ouch! :) I never did make it into my tub for a waterbirth….at least I did with my 2nd – congrats on baby #3!!!

    Love and light~
