After sixteen hours of natural unmediated labor my amazing son was born at 5:52 p.m. on August 24th, 2010. It was the moment I felt like I had waited for my entire life: the moment two become three and we were a family.
My life will be forever changed by the transformative experience of natural childbirth working with a midwife and doula. I have a new-found love for my imperfect body that can do extraordinary things. I now know I can accomplish anything I set my mind to achieving. As for my son, I now truly understand the meaning of love and I am experiencing a level of joy that I never knew was possible. I love being a mom!
