I am so, so grateful to share that my little one arrived May 2nd.
We did not end up having a UC. Just as labor started, it was apparent that baby had some distress- we tried to contact a midwife, but when we didn't get an answer, we continued on to the hospital.
Considering the distress, it was the right thing to do ( if we didn't have a midwife with better resuscitation equipment), but Baby did receive birth injuries ( Brachial plexus and an an unusual humerus fracture) that...I am trying to process.
I had linked to my birth story...my way of digesting all that happened, but I found out that some of my traffic was coming from a site where I don't think they had my support ( or my baby's) in mind.
So I can't really share. I genuinely appreciate everyone here who really did want to share and support. I learned a lot of good things from you all, and it was so wonderful to feel like I could talk about my real hopes for birth and our reasons for considering Ucla without judgement.
