Oh hold: The birth of Helena Rose
Oh hold: The birth of Helena Rose

I was walking around dilated 3 centimeters and having contractions five minutes apart for days, but I wasn’t progressing so the doctors kept sending me home or telling me it wasn’t time. On December 20, the contractions were getting much worse, so I talked my husband into going in yet again to be checked. I was […]

Guts and glory: The birth of Jill and Diane
Guts and glory: The birth of Jill and Diane

I was 37 weeks and four days into my twin pregnancy and beyond thrilled to be heading to my induction appointment at 6 a.m. on a Friday morning. I was thrilled to be saying goodbye to an uncomfortable existence and hello to some sweet babies. The babies were good sizes, A being almost 7 pounds and B […]

It's a boy!: The birth of Roland
It's a boy!: The birth of Roland

I had been having prodromal labor for a little more than two weeks. Most of the time, the contractions would start at night and stop when I got up and started moving around. On two separate occasions, I felt certain I was going to be having a baby the next day until the contractions stopped […]

Safe zone: The birth of Theo and Henry
Safe zone: The birth of Theo and Henry

“We don’t need you NICU!” I repeated for weeks every time Brian and I passed the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at UCLA on our way to be checked for pre-term labor. “My babies will be fine! … Besides, we are almost in the green zone,” I declared. Thirty-two was the most important number I had […]

Bigger and better: The birth of Carter
Bigger and better: The birth of Carter

The big “DD” had come and gone, and I was an emotional wreck. I’d been told by my midwife that our cute baby boy would most likely be coming early (and that was at 35 weeks!). Needless to say, my anxiety only increased with every passing day that I had to wake up, exercise and […]

Close call: The birth of Bodhi
Close call: The birth of Bodhi

I woke up on Friday feeling tight in the stomach. “Tight” is the only way I could think to describe it. My mother-in-law was visiting from South Africa for the first time, and we all decided to go shopping and see the movie Sing that afternoon. Time went by uneventfully until after the movie let out. […]

Pushing through: The birth of Gavin
Pushing through: The birth of Gavin

Seeing the plus sign on that little stick for the second time was just as surreal as the first. Not long after our daughter’s first birthday we realized our baby was growing up, and we no longer had a baby. Was now the time to continue to grow our small family? I was overjoyed with how […]

Take it VBAC: The birth of Macy Mae
Take it VBAC: The birth of Macy Mae

At my first prenatal doctor appointment, we discussed delivery, and I decided that I truly wanted a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). It was very important to me after my first daughter’s birth, which included hitting 41 weeks without any signs of labor, an induction, three hours of pushing and a big baby that would […]

Babies raising babies: A birth story
Babies raising babies: A birth story

As Hannah continues to prepare for round two of childbirth, I thought it would be fitting to share a condensed version of Lydia’s birth story from almost a year and a half ago. Experiencing Lydia’s birth will forever be one of the most precious moments of my entire life, and was incredibly emotional and spiritual […]

A last-minute detour: The birth of Isaac
A last-minute detour: The birth of Isaac

After my daughter, Addy, was born, I had my heart set on a VBAC. I labored very quickly with Addy and pushed hard for two hours to have her head still stuck at -1 station. When she was delivered via C-section, her head was crooked. The doctor said her head was tilted toward one shoulder, so […]

In the blink of an eye: The birth of Penelope Jane
In the blink of an eye: The birth of Penelope Jane

Penelope is my third child, and this pregnancy was my first time going past my due date. Those last days of pregnancy are a mental chess game, and I now understand just how much harder it is each day you go beyond your due date. Knowing it is simply a guess doesn’t make it any less […]

At long last: The birth of Junia
At long last: The birth of Junia

I was 10 days past my due date. Never in my life had 10 days felt so long—not even when I was a kid waiting for Christmas! Pregnant with my first child in the middle of July, 10 days overdue, fearing the unknown … it was pretty much a recipe for a serious meltdown, and I had one! […]
