Just your typical non-theistic, liberal, blended family.
Thank you, Mothering, for the past twelve years of support and community. I look forward to many more.

Riley's mom- this may not console you, but at least you can be sure that future c-sections will be less traumatic because they will be expected, and you will be able to prepare yourself emotionally. Part of the depression I felt after mine was because I had expected a vaginal birth. I have prepared myself for the possibility this time, so if I have to have another (tho I am going to attempt VBAC) I will be going into it knowing what to expect and feeling more empowered by education and self-preparation, and expect that it will be easier to deal with.
|also feel like I have to justify or explain all the reasons why we had a c-birth, why we had NO other options, why we were unable to breastfeed, how long and hard I tried so "they" don't think of me as "one of those *icky* mainstream moms."|
