I will be the first to admit that my life is more than a little nutty right now. However, I am starting a new project and I’m really excited about it!
Some of you may know that I’m pretty passionate about natural child birth. I knew when I was 15 that I wanted to have a drug free birth whenever that day came. I didn’t want to give birth on my back, I wanted to be able to eat and drink and move around if I needed to. And even at 15, I knew my body could handle it. It never really scared me.
Anyway, since Dillinger was born I have been trying to think of a way to use this passion and I finally figured it out.
I’ve started a new blog called The Natural Birth. I want to collect natural birth stories (and stories of people who want to go natural, regardless of outcome) in part because I’m a big proponent of natural birth and because I think those experiences should be shared. I was definitely looking all over the place for natural birth stories when I was pregnant. It’s just reassuring, especially when you’ve never given birth, to hear others’ experiences. And, by comparison, there are relatively few of them!
All that to say, if you have had a drug free birth experience or attempt, and would like to share it, please let me know! My info is listed above in the contact me section.
