What an absolutely beautiful story - it left me weeping. If my husband only reads one birth story, I want yours to be it.

Just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. Welcome to your little one!

Loved your story. It made me think of things I want to talk with my midwife about, and also made me very excited for my own upcoming birth.

Congratulations.
