Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine Feature

When Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine asked if they could feature Liam's birth story, I jumped on the opportunity!  Too often I think women love to share "horror" stories with one another, instead of discussing birth in a beautiful, positive light.  One of my favorite natural childbirth books is  Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, because it is full of stories that encourage!  So all this to say, that I love any opportunity to share Liam's birth story!  And since there are plenty of new readers as of lately, I was due to repost about it.  If you want the full version you can read my own post here, or you can go to the Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine blog and read a slightly condensed version there.


Happy Birthing! :-)

  9. Beautiful story and what a fun feature! It can be so hard to see other things work so well for others - everything from pregnancy to birth to parenting - but in the end, it's OUR story, for better or worse! I had a very long (4 day) induction, so I always get a funny look when people ask about it...It was definitely not what we planned, but it's what happened, and in the end, we have healthy little (big) boys now. Thank you for sharing your story!!!

  11. Oh this is so absolutely awesome Laura!!!!! I agree with you, it seems easier for people to share horror stories than it is to share the beauty of birth. So encouraging! Just realizing I have yet to post my birth story with Lily. Maybe I'll work on that in the upcoming weeks! ;) so excited for you!
