Joshua’s First Birthday

Happy Birthing Day!

I believe that all births should be celebrated.  The following birth stories include big babies, little babies, long and short labors, late babies and preemies, natural hospital births, hospital births with interventions, emergency c-sections, planned c-sections, inductions, home births and unassisted births, births with doctors, midwives and doulas, and everything in between. 

While I understand that a birth cannot be summed up into a few words (hence the “story” part), I’ve written a few little notes to help differentiate between the stories.  If you submitted a story and don’t like my summary, please feel free to write a sentence or two and send it to me, I’d be happy to replace what I’ve written.  If you forgot to submit your story (or I forgot to post it), leave a comment with a link and summary and I’ll add it.  (But remember, I’ll be at work so I won’t update for a while!)

Thank you to all the wonderful mommas who shared their stories! I have loved reading them all!
