Introduction to August's Birth Story


I've been debating whether or not to share August's birth story. Part of me feels like it's too personal to publish for the world to see. Another part of me knows how much it meant to me to read other birth stories when I was pregnant (and still does now). In the end I've decided that I can share it without being too explicit and that I want to because I want a record of the experience before I forget all the details. And so I will be sharing it with you over the next few days.

August's birth was actually kind of an ordeal. I have realized that when I tell the story to people it sounds a lot worse than it actually felt, but I guess I did go through a lot more than most women do. Even so, I'd do it all again in a heartbeat.

The end result was pretty awesome...


  1. I think what you're doing is great. Those of us who haven't had children yet or even those who are having more, really benefit from the sharing of experiences:)

  2. Not sure I should read these . I remember it like it was yesterday and I have to say it was the most excruciating experience of my life. I am crying now just remembering what my only baby girl went through. On the bright side, she was so brave and she has one of the best husband's in the world. Those things are good memories.
