We have many more stories coming, but here are a few to get you started while we update this page.
Everyone asks me about the birth. “You really had a 10lb. baby at home, with nothing for pain!?” they say.
And I have to answer “Yep, that’s true.”
But it isn’t. I had my husband’s arms for comfort. My children’s faces for inspiration, and their soft touches to calm me. I had a trusted guardian, who kept me safe and let me do things the way I needed to. And I had myself, my determination…
I wanted this. I dreamed of this baby for years, and this perfect birth for 9 months…
and it all came true.
Our road to meeting Wyatt had been a long time coming. We had tried for years to get pregnant w/o assistance. Finally we had to have a team of doctors along with months of self injections, acupuncture, patches and pills to get pregnant and stay pregnant. I knew that after such a medical start, I was done feeling like a science experiment and wanted something beautiful and natural. The pregnancy certainly didn’t start out the pregnancy of my dreams but the baby and home birth experience certainly were. I can’t imagine doing it any other way. I always felt confident in Cori even when the confidence in myself was lacking. After he was born I felt like I had finished a marathon, climbed Mt.Everest and stopped a speeding train. I don’t think there is anything I couldn’t do now. I had a home birth, hear me roar.
