I'm a mom to three active and hilarious kids! Two my babies were born at home with Marleen & Kaleem. They were two of the best days of my life because I was in control, and working hard but was allowed to work hard and feel the pain versus my first birth where I was in a hospital and offered pain medication every hour and was treated as if I didn't know my body and felt violated.
I believe in natural childbirth and that medical interventions have their place but should be the exception, not the rule. I am a doula and have attended 5 births with another in the next few weeks. I love pregnant women and anything breastfeeding and newborn related! Such an ordinary miracle each baby is! Yet nothing feels ordinary about the experience of giving birth.
