    My Biggest Scar

    I have 5 wonderful living beautiful children. I am also the mom of 2 angels who left me during my 13 week of pregnancy. I was lucky when I started to have children. Though their were complications, I was able to delivery vaginally, and everything pretty much followed my birthing...

    Throughout my entire pregnancy I was dead set

    on having a natural, unmedicated vaginal delivery. I knew this baby would probably be my only one so I wanted to make sure I got the full experience, I didn't care how painful labor and delivery would be, I wanted to feel every bit of it. February 13 I went into labor. I...
