I think it didn't hurt, I think she was a little scared but she knew you were there. I think she was excited but also sorry to leave you. I was blessed when my mama left to have a "midwife" of sorts present, helping guide her and myself through the process. It was the most beautiful experience I have ever had. I know it hurts so much ... in my opinion these bodies are such a small piece of who we are though.
