My first home birth with Stephanie was my 3rd child. We had a water birth with a inflatable pool that was smaller than we originally thought it was going to be haha! But Stephanie let me labor and do things how I needed and it was just a great birth!

My second birth wit...

  I was 41 weeks and 4 days when our precious first born baby decided to begin making her arrival. I had gone into “false” labor twice 2 weeks prior for 5 hours and 8 hours each time. I had no idea at the time, but I think it was those two occasions of “false” labor th...

At long last, I have an opportunity to sit down (well, I’m actually bouncing on my exercise ball while wearing Joseph in a wrap, but that counts as sitting these days) and write my first birth story! Fair warning: it’s long, and I don’t shy away from using words like “...

The evening of Monday, December 26, 2016 I started having some real contractions that seemed fairly regular. They picked up slowly before bed, so I figured that this was real labor and we’d be having a baby soon. I fully expected to wake up to full-blown labor. I had c...
