I recently became a blogger for NaturalNews.com. I hope you like my birth story! I wanted to share it with others in the hopes that it could help new moms prepare. I also feel strongly that all of us women should share our birth stories with other women to promote openness and reduce the fear surrounding birth!
PS I didn’t pick the photograph that comes with the post. I was disappointed by what the staff editor chose because it perpetuates the stereotypical over medicalized hospital birth which does not match with my ideals or my experience. I may have ended up giving birth in a hospital, but it didn’t look anything like the woman in that picture!
