Miranda Dawn was born March 25th at 1:35 pm. She was 7lbs 5oz. I had already decided a repeat c-section was going to be best for us, and I am very glad I did. Because of this, my ob scheduled a nst for 38 weeks 4 days. I was having very small ctx, and her heart rate would drop considerably with just these tiny ctx. So, she was born 2 hours later. The cord was wrapped tight around her neck 3 times.
The hospital I'm at is supportive of the parents' wishes. (Vaxing, medications, rooming in, etc.)They are pro breastfeeding and Miranda was not cleaned up until we were ready for her to be. She was kept in the OR until I left, and then she stayed with us for at least 2 hours. She latched right on and has been nursing well.
I know it is not an ideal sounding situation for most people, but it has been a better experience than I could have imagined, and it is just what our family needed.

Congrats mama!! Such a beautiful little girl you have there


While your birth may not have been ideal for some, that can pretty much be said for anyone! I am so happy to hear that it was a positive birth experience for you.

Here is to a quick recovery!
