Meat. B12. Babies.

I haven’t been on wordpress, or writing at all for months. There have been some serious things happening in my life that are completely consuming. Things that are 100 percent avoidable. I am a very natural girl. I like healthy. Right now though, I am pissed because of where that has gotten me. I was […]

My Very Own Labor, Birth, and Placenta Continued

I felt great immediately after the birth of our baby. I was just kneeling there on the bed. The baby was still attached to me by the cord. I had just given birth. Pregnancy was over! We did it! The baby was here! The fetal membranes (the bag of waters) didn’t break until the last […]

My Very Own Labor, Birth, and Placenta

There were 2 hours between the moment I realized I was in labor to the moment I got a hold of my partner. He wouldn’t get home for another 45 minutes after that. I threw a couple of towels down on the floor next to my bed and on top of my bed. I hadn’t […]

I like to take care of myself during the childbearing time. I had learned from my last pregnancy that it is good to track progress […]

Fetal Death and a Missed Abortion

I was six months along, still pregnant. We had decided to take 100% responsibility for our baby’s birth, so I began to study unassisted birth . I read several books, looked stuff up online, and talked to my boyfriend a lot about how birth worked. Birth is less scary when you understand what is happening. […]

Miscarriage at Home

Loosing the baby – the scariest thing that I could possibly think of I had been trying to convince my partner to create a baby with me for a while before the pregnancy. He wasn’t interested, so when my period was late he was getting a little worried. Five days late and he asked me […]
