I agree that sometimes what we don't know helps to not get in our way! I was able to help a mama who had surpirse twins and one came breech and although I had suspected she could have 2 in there she did not want an US to confirm it, she just wanted to have complete and utter faith and it was too her and her babies benefits.
Amazing pictures and love her name too!!! Welcome to the world sweet Cricket!

I am eerily moved by your story too as this baby was very much a surprise, conceived on the cusp of my own doula/CBE/birthy career taking off and I had the same ambivalence at first. I've also had a rough pg but you have reminded me: "I trucked on knowing that this was the last time that I would have/or get to feel this in my life. An honor and a burden!"
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your wonderful story and pictures. I still have lots of time for this baby to turn, but I know if she doesn't, I can draw on the faith of women like to you allow me to trust that my body and my baby will do what it needs for this one to be born safely.
