That is such an amazing story! I love that you got such an intimate and perfect birth.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

It just goes to show you that birth is a natural process. Us women have so much power and strength we don't even realize it. You instinctively knew what to do because you were focused and intuned to your body. I applaud you!
I too had 3 natural births in hospitals. I wish I could have had a homebirth myself.

I felt that I was right there with you. I absolutely loved your story, it made me cry. I am saving it for my 19yr old daughter to read (she likes these stories!).

I had to laugh when you described the top of your daughters head as a wet tennis ball And I can just picture your husband standing there in the doorway to the bathroom with his car keys in his hand. He sounds a little like my husband.....

Great story. Thank you for sharing it with us.

What a beautiful birth story. It is so refreshing that it does not include one shred of ego. Your gratitude is evident. Congratulations!

What a beautiful birth story! You write so well. I, too, had a very quick and intense labor and birth with ds2, and your imagery described it so well... I really identified with all of it from feeling like being swept up by a tornado to peeling the sweatpants off in order to get at the baby!

However, I was surrounded by people (mw got there just in time), and I think your situation sounded much more peaceful!

Oh Mama I'm in tears... How I wish I'd read this when you first posted it. Your birth was what I dreamed about for my birth with my son, but I was talked out of a homebirth and instead ended up with an induced hospital birth full of interventions. I wish I'd found MDC sooner...

Beautifully written. Thank you so much for sharing. I hope my next birth story will be so amazing. Much love to you and your littles
