After having a horrible birth experience with Luna, I was really dreading this birth. With Luna we had such high expectations of what we wanted the birth experience to be, and nothing turned out like we planned it. I realized at some point that I was dreading this birth because I was visualizing a similar experience. My midwives helped me to visualize a positive experience ahead of time, which was very helpful in those last months.
And it did turn out to be a great experience this time! I had a wonderful midwife and nurse that stayed with us constantly and helped me through the contractions and pain. They were very supportive when I decided to get the epidural and still stayed with me. We actually had a great time in the hospital- very supportive and respectful staff, all around. What a change from only a year ago!
Now we're just hanging out at home enjoying our newer, bigger family. Love!
