Re: Lennon Maxine's Birth Story (2 hour labor/waterbirth/rare placenta abnormality)

* I edited to add a photo of the placenta. My midwife actually has a BETTER photo on her camera she is supposed to email me, but you can see how these giant veins ran through the membranes and the cord was inserted into the membranes too.

I've seen that is where I got the info explaining vasa previa and velamentous cord insertion. I do plan on sharing my story there when I'm more recovered. I had never heard of this before it happened to me. It's nice to know that there are other vasa previa miracles out there!!!
