Way to go, Mama!!! : While horrific, indeed, that was truly inspirational to the very core! I'm so thrilled to hear all is well with you and baby Isaiah! Congratulations and enjoy your babymoon!

By the way, you should put this in the Birth Stories section! Everyone should read this!

Wow, what a story, there were moments in your story that reminded me very much of my own birth. Your baby is beautiful.

You are an amazing woman and mother! If I were to end up in the hospital you are my inspiration to hold tight and get the birth I want. I know the OB we chose would stand up for us 100%, but it is hard when the hospital has its own way of doing things. Thanks for sharing the story of Isiah's birth

what a story! Someday you will look at him (when he's about to be a papa) and say, "man...when I had you...."

an amazingly powerful story and way to be strong in such a tough situation...I doubt that there are many among us who would not have been scared into something we weren't quite prepared for. Your experience and confidence in your natural ability is amazing.

Congrats and welcome little man!!!:

An amazing, impressive story! (And funny, too...)

I hope that if I end up at the hospital instead of my birth center, that I will be able to advocate for myself and my child as well as you did. It sounds like you and your husband were sharing the same brain - he did a great job advocating, too.

Oh I am in love with you! I have never read a birth story like that and reading birth stories is my hobby!

It takes a strong woman to birth a baby while having to fend off agressive medical types. (Imagine, that nurse was dying to give you an episiotomy!) Very strong. I probably would have shut down entirely. You are seriously my hero! I may hire you as my doula!

I hope your Isaiah gives you as much joy as mine has given me! <3
