Birth Stories

Home sweet home: The birth of William

"I felt entirely supported throughout labor. Never once did I feel out of control or in pain. For the majority of labor, both my husband and our doula had their hands on me. It felt like they were keeping me anchored."

Welcome home: The birth of Lexi

"I never imagined that I would love the birthing experience and those precious few hours afterwards so much. I’m not only amazed by myself but also by Lexi who came from inside my body to the outside world, as if she knew exactly what she were doing."

Sudden rush: The birth of Faye

"Around 4:30 a.m. I all of a sudden felt the urge to push. I told John to get the nurse, and sure enough, I was a 9. They started rushing in the equipment to set up for delivery. I would be pushing very soon!"

Full moons & baby booms: The birth of Penelope

"At my weekly OB appointment the Friday before, I was already a solid 4 to 5 centimeters dilated. With my contractions becoming more intense pressure-wise, the last thing I was looking to do was walk into the hospital with a baby on the way out. After speaking with the on-call doctor a little while later, we decided to go to the hospital just to play it safe."
