“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers–strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” ― Barbara Katz Rothman

If there is one truth about birth it’s that the plan can change and that’s okay……

Labour was induced early morning and everything progressed so well! Tharien fully dilated but baby changed position and it ended in a emergency C-section. Mom and baby was doing fine but the birth plan has changed. A lot of times this is really traumatic for a new mom but not for Tharien. Birth made her a mother, “…..strong, competent, capable mother who trust themselves and know their inner strength…..”

Thanks for asking me to be a witness to your beautiful journey.

The next hour was the hardest for me, it felt like torture. It had gotten dark and we lit candles around the bath. I was trying all different positions, but struggled to find something bearable. I had worked so hard on breathing and relaxing, but when the contractions came it was so crushing, all I could do was ride it out and wait for it to be over.
