Eira is here! - Birth story in #37 - Page 3

post #41 of 45
That's a great birth story! Your mw doesn't carry a birth stool? I thought they all did. I'll have to keep that in mind... I've birthed all of mine laying in bed because it was the most comfortable.

"The birth geeks" very cool about the heart-shaped placenta!!

Thanks for posting your story! It sounds like it went really well and Eira is just adorable!!

I felt much the same way about Hypnobabies with #1. I think it did help with my perception of the pain, even though I didn't actually use it during labor.

She may have. I just wasn't aware enough at the time to know what she brought (except oxygen, because I heard it being tested). For all I know, she could have brought a baby elephant It was never brought up, though. If I'd realized this one would be another toilet baby, I'd have asked about it at a prenatal visit, but it was pretty firmly in my head that I'd do something more dignified this time.

I'm not sure if my MW has a birthing stool, either. at it being more dignified. Plenty of babies are born on the toilet!
