New big brother Lincoln thinks his new baby sister is pretty special. I think she is too. She taught her mom what a high it is to birth naturally. Often the power of preparation, positive thinking and a second baby combine to transform feelings of regret or inadequancy left over from a first birth experience into jubilation, awe and empowerment. Congratulations!
A huge thank you to Trina Dart who was my back up doula for this birth. She stepped in when I couldn't and provided excellent support and care. She made a world of difference during the birth.
