Giving birth to my beautiful baby boy was one of the most rewarding and special moments of my life. It is something I am immensely proud of. Proud of myself and of my baby – we had both worked so hard!
Our labour is something I will never forget and I am grateful for the time I invested in thinking about how I wanted it to be.
I found the crazy thing about labour and birth is that there is nothing in the world like it and so nothing can prepare you for it. But that’s the beauty of it.
It’s a very momentous and special time that cannot be re-created. For me, my body took over my whole self. It knew exactly what it was supposed to be doing. I trusted my body and surrendered to it. I found the whole experience immensely powerful and raw.
Having a baby is the best thing I and my partner have ever done. We fell in love with our son the second we laid eyes on him and our love for him continues to grow every day!
