    Twice

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
