Quoting larissalarie:I'm sure you'll get plenty! Since I don't do home birth, I'm sure this isn't the place for mine :-)
Thank you so much r sharing..made it clicky so others can read too
It was a hospital birth, but totally natural. It was like a homebirth inside hospital walls.
made it clicky..thank you!
Quoting sj3starz:Dunno if this will work for you. Sorry no clicky

Quoting TigerMomLove:Water broke on a Friday morning at 4:15am. Took a shower, did some laundry, then called the doctor at about 5:30am to let them know. Mild, occasional cramping. Doctor said if not a steady increase in contractions, they would still like to see me at 9:30am. Texted doulas and let them know I was in labor but would meet them at hospital. Packed car at 9am and showed up for appointment. 5cm, head to hospital! So back into the car, called friend and she picked up oldest for a fun weekend.
12ish, second stage labor. Contractions mild enough that they are encouraging. Exciting to know baby is coming. Doula arrives. Went over options, and started practicing with acupuncture to relieve stronger contractions.
Doctor needs to check how far along I am if I don't start having regular contractions. It's 3pm. Plan is to try pumping or nipple stimulation if contractions don't pick up so we can avoid anything that is not natural.
3rd stage starts. Strong contraction makes me throw my hands into the bed.
Contractions are strong but I am stronger. I worry about the pain to come. I'm told that it burns but pushing relieves the pain.
Im ready to push. He's so low. I feel the urge to push him out. I want to meet him. The pain is intense because I'm afraid to push him out. I'm thinking too much about wether I'm brave enough to get him through the entrance into the world? Skill Doula asks me to find my inner strength. She reminds me that I have the strength to push him out but I can't find it so I basically tell her to stop telling me. Then I remember to pray and that the feeling of pushing somehow helps. Yes! As long add I'm pushing, there isn't much pain! Biggest work out of my life and Liam arrives!
He came out with his head sideways, looking at my mother who is handed the scissors and cuts the umbilical cord.
amazing feeling to find the strength to push him out. Freed another level of woman in me. Empowering and full of love. Sore, but recovery was amazing compared to medicated previous birth. Wouldn't trade it for the world! y
