    Yeah

    It's rewarding in way. I tried nature birthing.  Not successful. I had a C-section.

    Twice, Maybe Once More?

    I had my first child, a son, in 2009. I was ordered on bed rest for the weekend after HBP numbers at my doctors' office. I was scheduled to come back in on Monday and assess the situation. I was just a day over 37 weeks. On Sunday, my contractions started, and we headed to the...

    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 went into labor on the 9th of october last

    year. I was at home, with my girlfriend, (also pregnant) watching tv. I got up to go make dinner, when I felt a jabbing sensation in my belly. It was much stronger than the braxton hicks i'd been feeling for a few days, so I leaned against the counter, breathing hard. My...

    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...

    And It Was Definitely An Experience

    Wow, I don't think anyone or anything can prepare you for what giving birth is really like. I read and heard so many stories throughout my pregnancy, I visualized the entire thing, and I was still surprised. Here is my story: At 39 weeks and 3 days pregnant I fell asleep telling...

    First Minute As a Mommy

    I was 20 years old, and had been pregnant for 8 and a half months. I had learned the reality of morning sickness; in fact, it was the morning sickness that brought me to the doctor. I had thought I was dealing with the flu. The doctor had me do a urine sample...

    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...

    I have two little boys, 7 and 3. They came into the world in the usual way. In case you are wondering, yes it hurts. Pain so unbearable at times I wished for death. Begged for it. People say you forget the pain of childbirth or you would never do it again. I'll tell you, I did...

    Twice. All natural water births.

    One in the birth center and one at home. Both labors were relatively short, the first was the longest at 5.5hrs of active labor. It was very intense and difficult and yes, even painful but it was also beautiful, powering, and everything I had wanted. The second was very easy...
