Love all the pictures!!! We had a photographer friend take pictures of our birth and I'm SOOO glad we did! She caught so much that I would have missed. I feel so sorry for people who think labor/birth is too "gross" to photograph/video tape. That's what my whole family thought, but they like the pictures now!

I loved your story! How awesome to have first nursing session pictures. I didn't think to do that and totally regret it! Congrats.

Thank you for sharing!

We have 3 LO's, all c-sections.

I just watched the movie "The Business of Being Born" last week. I really wish I would have done more research before DS was born 5 yr ago. I would have selected a midwife for sure.

With DS (our first) I had back labor, arrived at the hospital at 7cm and then discovered he was facing up instead of down. They didn't give me any options to try and turn him. I pushed for 4 hours with him that way and then they brought out the vacuum and before I knew it we were having a c/s.

For insurance reasons we doctored at the same place 2 more times and it was all c/s for us after the first one ~ Because of Dr's strong suggestion. I think they tend to scare mom's to not try VBAC.

Anyway, thank you for sharing your beautiful experience. We are done having children and it is so miraculous!

Congratulations!
