Last July, I had a baby girl! She is an amazing little angel and sooo full of energy! Her pregnancy and birth especially was quite a wild ride- there was so much we both went through and also so much I have learned. I will most likely be posting her birth story later. My plan was a home water birth, which took a while to fall into place- as Illinois has some of the most rigid laws & not many midwives available- but I ended up needing an emergency C-section with little one. After 50-some hours of labor (yes, sadly that is correct) I could not go on much more & her heart rate started to spontaneously drop. She was positioned in such a way where she was low in my pelvis but her head & neck were arched back and pushing on my spine/tailbone area, so that was another reason why things were more difficult.
I’m so glad she is here with us and is well, that we both got through everything ok. Little baby S is definitely a strong and Divine star being. The entire time I felt a higher Divine power guiding and protecting us, which was comforting. There were definitely many angels helping!
