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!"

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! "

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."

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."
