Here is Amie's birth story. Just a month after giving birth to Sawyer she told me (Anne) "I seriously can't wait to do this whole birthing process again! It was fantastic!"
My journey to a calm and comfortable childbirth was not an easy one. I was the girl who said she would never try a natural childbirth. Why, you may ask? Let me start by saying that I am a Registered Nurse. I remember back to my nursing school days very vividly. I remember watching and assisting women with the birth of their babies, watching them scream and writhe in pain. To me, that was no way to welcome the birth of your baby. I knew from that point on that I would be getting an epidural when the time came for me to have babies. I wanted to enjoy the birth of my baby and that did not appear to be possible without an epidural.
Juniper’s Birth Story
I had been experiencing frequent braxton hicks for a couple weeks before the birth. Even though I had them most of my pregnancy they were starting to become more frequent at night making me believe that “tonight was the night.” They never turned into anything and left me unable to fall asleep for hours.
My guess date came and went which didn’t surprise me all that much, but when the 41 week mark came and went I started getting impatient. I loved being pregnant but was mentally and physically ready to meet this new little one.
