Birth Stories

I ended up having to have a cesarean section because I went to 42 weeks and my baby was in distress, but I went into the entire situation with quite a bit of knowledge about what was going to happen, what my choices were. In the end I didn't have very much choice because of my baby's vitals...but I was a lot calmer about not having a vaginal birth because the entire hospital staff was aware of my wishes and knew I was hoping for little to no intervention. I did use the HypnoBirthing® techniques to get through a lot of the painful procedures leading up to the birth: epidural, cervical check. In the end I didn't need any pain killers stronger than Motrin in the days after my surgery, and was up and walking and back to running 2 miles a day 3 weeks after my delivery.
