Looking back on the birth of your beautiful babes, is there anything that you would change? Is there anything that you took out of your birth experience that you know you want to be different next time?

With Trupie...pretty much everything I would change...except for the beautiful healthy breathing baby at the end. With Ele, I would change NOTHING. If it all happened the exact same way with another baby I would be extremely blessed!

I would change the people that were in the room and have my BF more involved. I would also have my baby at home.

My births really have been awesome. Noone pushing meds or intervention on me. I've been very lucky.
That said the more children I had the more educated I became.
With one child I had a mid constantly chasing me with the external fetal monitoring. She would plonk it on my belly with every contraction.
I was getting seriously annoyed with her, when the other mid told her to leave me alone.
Apart from that there's been nothing serious that I can say that I would want to change. My births have all been positive experiences.

Oh, apart from my waters being broken with no.1 without my consent, but thankfully they only got my head waters & my hind waters broke in a massive gush a couple of hours before I had her.

The birth of my first was really easy, smooth and fast. I would have changed a lot of things though. There were a good amount of interventions.

With my second, I would have liked to have a homebirth, but other than that, no, I had an amazing birth. I LOVED my birth experience. It was so freakishly easy and I had great nurses and loved my midwife.
