|My oldest, Elanor, minutes after birth
I've posted all six of my birth stories to my blog, and I'm consolidating all the links into one post for easier reference.
All six kids were born in a hospital, and all were natural births (vaginal and unmedicated). The last four (Violet, Gabriel, Peter, and Laura) were doula-assisted. Elanor, Violet, and Gabriel were caught by obstetricians, William and Laura were caught by CNMs (certified nurse-midwives), and Peter was caught by a nurse because the CNM didn't make it in time.
