    My Three Sons

    MY FIRST My first birth was 9 years ago. I was 18. I had him with a Midwife, in a "Birthing Center." It was quite a traumatic experience, because I was young and didn't know what to expect, and because the environment I gave birth in was uncomfortable. I didn't know I was in...

    And I Will Never Again.

    I had my son in 2006.  It was actually a really easy labor.  I was taking a nap at 10:30 pm and went to the bathroom and was bleeding.  I went to the hospital and they checked me and told me I probably wouldn't have the baby that night and would be sent home. ...

    I Won't Do It Again

    if I want another child some day I'll adopt.  I thought I was going to die when I had my son.  The epidural didn't relieve the pain, I should have done the whole thing naturally and it would have gone a lot quicker.  I was in labor for 24 hours and developed a...
