No, I still haven’t finished my 4th and final daughter’s birth story. I’ve been too busy and too distracted, and honestly not terribly motivated to share all the gory details. This is why I’m trying to post these ‘snapshots.’ I wrote about my VBA2C for ICAN’s blog, so if you’re interested, go read that post – it shares a lot of what went ‘wrong’ with the birth.
I’ve never enjoyed one of those ‘perfect births.’ You know – the ones you do hear about in the homebirth community – the candles, the soft music, the water, the privacy. I’m still left so unsatisfied . . . and yet thankful.
My baby did come out vaginally. I still don’t know how that happened. Sheer dumb luck? God? A little of both?? In spite of all of the interventions at the hospital, the stress, the loss of my quested homebirth, she came out vaginally.
