Birth Story

Taylor Mackenzie
Born: Sept. 2nd, 2007 @ 8:46 pm
Weight: 6 lbs. 15.2 oz
Length: 20 inches long, head 12 1/2 inches

Daughter of Charles and Rionna (our first little one).

We went to the hospital to be induced on sunday the second as she was due on 8/24 and she still hadn't shown up yet. At 6 am they dosed me with cytotec (?)a pill they put on my cervix.At that point I was only 2 cm dialated and 60% effaced. We had to be monitored for an hour,
but then we (my husband and I) had breakfast and started walking around the hospital. I recieved a second dose at 10 am and by then a couple people had stopped by to say hello. Another hour of monitoring, then we were up for a walk again. Contractions were coming about 3 minutes apart by 1 pm so they decided to hold off on pitocin and let me go from there. By 3pm they were strong enough I couldnt talk through them and they were coming about 2 minutes apart. My husband coached me on breathing, we changed positions a lot!Standing,leaning on the bed, using the birthing ball. I decided it was time to relax in the tub so I climbed in just after 3. It felt so great and the contractions almost melted away! My husband said he was going to take a 15 min break if that was ok with me, I was doing great, so off he went. After a couple contractions in the tub I felt a POP. Now this is my first, but I was pretty sure my water had broken. I couldn't tell though because I was in the tub, and her fluids were clear. So I got out and sure enough, my water had broken. Needless to say Dh was disappointed that he missed my water breaking. We knew things were happening quick on thier own after that. I refilled the tub and got back in,(nurse said it was fine to continue laboring). Contractions really picked up then, I would have liked to stay in the tub but I started to get too hot, so I got out.Everyone except DH and my friend were kicked out of the room, as it was taking all my concentration to get through the contractions. We used our breathing techniques we learned in Lamaze. We were holding it together ok until my midwife decided we needed to do internal monitoring because the external just wasn't picking up well(this was around 5pm). Being stuck to the bed really changed our ability to manage pain and unfortunately I asked for an epidural around 6pm. My midwife was a little short with me, I know she was dissapointed, and I basically felt guilty,but I wasn't handling it anymore and I knew it. At that point I was 6cm and 95%. Right after the epidural, just after 7pm I was 7cm 100%. Being able to finally rest and relax made the rest go quick. She was out by 8:46pm, with 26 minutes of pushing and no major tears (a couple my midwife called skidmarks! LOL) Of course it was the most amazing thing we have ever experienced and we feel so blessed.Thank you for giving our family the opportunity to share.


She is a red head like her Dad!
