This was so different than my home birth with my son. He was born at 38 weeks and although that entire labor and birth was only 10 hours my entire body was wrecked from the labor on hands and knees and the pushing took and hour and a half.
I was also so happy to have such a positive hospital birth with intervention. I feel so grateful to live in a time and place where we have so many choices and the best of natural and medical worlds. Everyone at the hospital was so wonderful and encouraging. We were all so well treated and taken care of. Tomorrow the midwife comes to visit us and will make sure all is good with nursing.
I was just reading the February chat thread with all of your hopes and concerns and I am so excited for all of you to meet your babies!!
