Oh I am in love with you! I have never read a birth story like that and reading birth stories is my hobby!
It takes a strong woman to birth a baby while having to fend off agressive medical types. (Imagine, that nurse was dying to give you an episiotomy!) Very strong. I probably would have shut down entirely. You are seriously my hero! I may hire you as my doula!
I hope your Isaiah gives you as much joy as mine has given me! <3
