That was such a great birth story- I loved the MIL smoothing things in the background- I swear- the way you tell it it's comedy material.
Now, did you have that sense of humour WHILE you were birthing, or only in retrospect?? This is the first serious-but-light birth story I've ever read- and it shows such a unique perspective!! Loved it- and congrats-
I don't think I ever chuckled so much reading a birth story before yours
You are such a great writer! Thanks so much for sharing your beautifu story!
I'm still trying to picture a chubby naked cabbage patch kid...:
I don't know if an update to a birth story is routinely requested, but give us an update if you have any new gleanings.
How was your daughter after the birth? Has your MIL thoroughly wiped every surface of your house? Has that doula been shamed into obscurity? Has your original doula begged forgiveness? Has WA changed that silly law?
