I posted over in Birth and Beyond, but wanted to share my story here, too.  It's long, so I'm just going to link to the three blog posts in which I tell our story:

 

The Birth Story, Part I: Notice of Eviction

The Birth Story, Part II: A "Gentle" Induction (a.k.a., The Seventh Circle of Hell)

The Birth Story, Part II: Plan C


Part hippie-chick, part type-A career woman, all mama. Enjoying life as a wife to my partner of 11 years, and a mama to our smarty-pants toddler, Cadence.

Wow, what an amazing (and challenging) experience!  Very moving story.love.gif

You are one courageous mama and Cadence is one lucky 'little' girl!

 

Her 'morning smiles' video is just beautiful.    Congrats to both of you.thumb.gifthumb.gif

well done :) i'm total baby, crying whilst reading it, thanks so much for writing your story, i don't really think i have it in me to write Madison's.  Talk about bitter-sweetness eh?

 I had a lot of similar things happen during her birth, such as the navel-pain and transfusion, though they never told me exactly why.  well done, you worked hard and got CJ here healthy and gorgeous. hi-5!

Lyndz, I'm so happy for you! Thank you for sharing your daunting and lovely tale.  I need to sit down and write Rowan's story when my semester ends.  I hope I can do it justice in the same way that you told Cadence's lovely story.

I loved ready your story Lyndzies, it had me in happy tears! I especially loved how well supported you were by your partner and care providers.
