“My entire pregnancy I would find myself having break downs over not being ready for the impending baby and the closer and closer I got to having Edwin, the more scared I became. I never found myself overjoyed or excited like I felt I was “supposed to” and even when I felt the baby kick, I thought it was cool, but I still never felt a connection to my pregnancy that I thought I was meant to. Everyone in my life assured me that as soon as I held my baby in my arms everything would change, but I was in such a dark place I couldn’t see how that was even remotely possible. Thankfully, no matter how many times I shared my fears and broke down in front of my husband, he supported me. Luckily, in my case, everyone who told me my feelings would change as soon as I saw my baby were completely, 100% right, and pregnancy ended up being the hardest part of my motherhood journey thus far. As soon as I laid eyes on my sweet little Edwin, I felt the overwhelming weight I carried for so long lifted off my shoulders and nothing but love was left in my heart.”

Born two weeks before we expected him to make his entrance into the world, Joshua was the most welcome surprise ending to my Tuesday this week. After a weekend of bed rest, I had a great appointment on Monday and expected to continue business as usual until at least today (when my normal twice weekly appointment was scheduled). I sat down to lunch on Tuesday and received a call from the doctor saying some tests they’d run the previous day showed indicators of preeclampsia and I needed to go to the hospital. Just a few hours later, this little guy was born - weighing 7 lbs 12 oz and measuring 20 in. Compared to the marathon labor of my first born, this felt like such a whirlwind. Hoping we get to go home tomorrow and start figuring out this whole family of four thing 💙 #boymom #birthstory #marchbaby #babyboy #godawgs #uga.

• I see you. 
I know the frustration. The long days and the longer nights. The guilt. The feelings of inadequacy. The never ending to-do list. 
And too, I know those quiet moments of peace. Sun shining in their golden hair. Belly laughs and chasing games. A heart full to bursting. 
I know the crazy contradiction that is motherhood. 
That something so overwhelmingly exhausting can be unendingly fulfilling. How the day can both consume and confuse you with it’s beauty and it’s chaos. 
I see you, right in the trenches too. 
You got this. .

If you could describe your birth story in just one word (okay, maybe a few words), what would it be?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dear mamas,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your birth story is special, unique and beautiful because no two bodies are the same. This means there’s no right or perfect way to give birth, so let’s celebrate the fact that we created life and brought them into this world however that may have been. @meg.boggs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is so true! I love hearing the non-birthing partners perspective on how valuable a doula is at their birth. 🥰 Did you have a doula? What was your experience?

Thinking of hiring a doula? Ask your questions! Any of us who hired one would be happy to share our experience.

PS: Evidence Based Birth is a GREAT place to go to for information about your labour and birth. Check them out @ebbirth
