To celebrate my son’s first birthday, I am (finally) sharing his home birth story.

This was my second vaginal delivery, but first natural delivery. First time around I was induced in a hospital, due to preeclampsia and wound up having an epidural.

Experiencing a natural birth, in the safety and comfort of my own home, was the most rewarding and amazing experience I’ve ever encountered in my life thus far.
