“Birth is hard, painful, scary, and uncertain but God was present the whole time. I was able to sing worship songs to him between contractions and after Ben was in my arms.”
For the past nine months Raul and I have been preparing for a HBA2C (home birth after 2 c-sections). We read all the books (Ina May was my favorite), watched all the documentaries and took a Bradley class to educate ourselves on the process. We were well versed in the “mechanics” of labor, but there was a mental/emotional component that I struggled with from day one.
