A c-section? Me? No way! In my mind, there was no way I’d need a c-section ever! Honestly, the thought terrified me so I just pushed it away.

 

Elizabeth Ernest and her third addition to her family

The procedure itself was much more intense due to the seriousness of the situation.  Due to a complication from my pregnancy, the operation had to be rougher, and the anesthesiologist upped my medications as a result.   

 

Elizabeth Ernest and her second addition to her family

For my second pregnancy, I was determined to have a vaginal birth after my c-section (VBAC).   

Elizabeth Ernest and her new little one

My name is Elizabeth Ernest, I am a former microbiologist for a pharmaceutical company. I got married to my husband in 2011, we have three children together, and today I will share my birth stories with you.  

Kara and her newborn

I spoke to my physician about hiring a doula who could encourage me through the process of labor with no drugs. In a nutshell, my physician expertly told me that I was welcome to TRY but since I had never been in labor before I didn’t know what the pain would be like. 

Chelsea, her husband and new born

My name is Chelsea Walter, I am a physical therapist and today I will share my birth story. 

Katherine Harding, her husband and baby

My name is Katherine Harding, I am a mother of two, and I am currently in the process of becoming a lactation counselor. I know pregnancy and motherhood are not easy. I know giving birth can be even harder. 

A woman in labor

Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life. Growing a new life inside of your body is one of the most extraordinary and holistic experiences a person can have. 

While pregnancy often brings joy and hope, we must also remember that there are inherent risks to pregnancy. 

A mom holding her baby

For first-time mothers, the first six weeks after delivery are a joyous and stressful time.  

Myths and falsehoods about motherhood and how your baby will (or should) act only further complicate this chaotic time.  

Woman holding her head in pain while dealing with morning sickness

Morning sickness is one of the most exhausting aspects of pregnancy. Not only is your body expending energy to grow a new life inside of you, but you are also in a state of frequent sickness.
