My sweet baby girl was born yesterday morning after 3 hours of active labor (with 33 total of stop and start early labor) at home, under water, and into my hands. My husband, two children, and Pamamidwife were in attendance.

The experience while its happening is completely and totally overwhelming. I felt a few times that I couldn't handle it but my body knew what to do when left to its own devices.

I want you to know that you can do it too! VBACs are worth it!

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