We got our maternity photos done last night - and the lady who did them was so cool!

She got to telling me about her labor with her daughter (Shes now 8). she lived just outside of Atlanta & delivered with a midwife in a birthing center with the help of a doula. She said she never really sought out to really go natural, though she looked into it & figured if she could do it she would. Well - she said she labored 27 hours - mostly in a birth tub, pushed for 5 hours, and gave birth to her 9 lb some odd ounces baby without one tear or episiotomy. She said she was the biggest wuss ever when it came to pain & never would have believed anyone had they told her shed have done that lol. She says shes really glad though - b/c now that she lives here, she says she knows in a lot of hospitals today theyd have given her a csection long before her pushing stage if not after half that time pushing.

She was awesome though

Just thought Id share that.

I just love hearing good birthstories from people I meet.
