Birth Stories

If there's one thing I love binging on it's birth stories. The good, the bad, and the meconium-covered, I love it all! The miracle of childbirth never ceases to amaze me and learning how precious babies come into the world is such a wonderful blessing.

To me it's such a gift when mother's share their stories so I thought I would share mine here.

baby #1

...There she was all gooey and adorable. It was without a doubt the most amazing and surreal experience...

Baby #2

All I could say was "Oh my God, oh my God, he's here he's here, thank you God" as I tickled his feet to get a nice solid cry out of him. Once he gave me a few good screams I pulled him across my chest and he instantly latched.

...and finally with a sudden feeling of relief, the best words "Reach down and grab your baby".  I sat up, reached my hands down between my legs, and grabbed hold of my squishy, slippery, squirmy, and BIG baby. I pulled the baby to me, looked down at my little miracle, and said "Hi baby" over and over again. 

You can find additional birth stories from friends, students, and more on my blog. If you'd like to share your own story, I would love to read it and share it here!
