Hi Everyone, I don't post very often, but love this website.  A little background on me.  I have 1 child who is 6 years old whom I had at 21.  I had a tough labor (despite doing everything "right," hypnobirthing, EPO, perineal massage, exercising regularly, although I did succeed at having the natural birth I wanted, yay!) and hemorrhaged severely due to a retained placenta going undetected for 3 weeks (don't even get me started on the long term effects this all had on...
