Birth Stories

Seeing it all: The birth of Carlos

"I remember the doctor arrived and asked if I wanted a mirror to see. 'What? Of course not!' I already felt I could die of nerves ... My doctor was wearing glasses, and with the reflection of the lamp bulbs, I saw everything!"

Sweet surrogacy: The birth of Valentin

"With the guys by my side, we wandered outside to the silence of the night under the beautiful moonlight. They showered me with praise and told me how strong I was. I shared my fears with them, and they held me up as the walk brought on very strong contractions."

Feel the Adrenaline: The Birth of Rush

"I was so scared that something was going to go wrong. I had never read about a placenta abrasion and wasn’t really able to process that everything was going to be OK because of the overwhelming way the contractions so quickly sped up and gained momentum."

Two weeks later: The birth of Stevie

"The contractions were continually getting worse and I was getting so tired. I remember I had to go to the bathroom and while doing so, my water sack started coming out before it had even broke! "

Big break: The birth of Elliott

"At 1:30 p.m. we got good news and bad news: I was 8 centimeters dilated, but the baby was sunny side up. The doctor had me change positions again to try to get the baby to flip. I kept moving into different positions, but our baby stubbornly refused to turn over."
