The Story of My Unplanned Home Birth
My youngest daughter recently turned 4. I thought I would share the story of her birth and how it didn’t quite go as anticipated! With my first, I had all theses plans of an unmedicated, natural birth but ended up with pre-eclampsia and a need to be induced. It was scary and not what I wanted. It was very intense and painful due to the pitocin. But I made it through without an epidural.
My second pregnancy started out a little rough but I was again hoping for a natural, hospital birth with a midwife as my doula. I had a plan in place but as you know, things don’t always go as planned.
On this episode Mama Instincts talks about:
- How I had wanted a natural birth with my first but ended up being induced
- How I thought I was going to lose my second pregnancy at the beginning of the pregnancy
- How prodromal labor transitioned into real labor
- What an unplanned home birth is like
