Rivers Birth

While I think it's great so many people are willing to share their birth stories I do think it is something special and sacred to each Women so I will not be sharing mine here. I did however read a lot of birth stories before mine and I listened to a lot of different horrifying tales from friends and other pregnant ladies and up until the last 10 weeks of my pregnancy I was indeed horrified to give birth.

So I thought it would ease the mind of some of those who have heard some awful stories and let you know that giving birth was one of the most amazing things I have ever done. Giving birth was anything but awful, and after all the horrible stories I heard I wish someone would have told me how wonderful it was.

Was it painful? Yes! Was I nervous? Of course! But it was also much easier than I thought it was going to be. My nurses were amazing, seriously the most loving and patient Women I have ever met. The most common horror story were about the nurses so I was so nervous about getting someone awful, however that was not the case for me. Each and every nurse was wonderful!

Maybe I was just really blessed and for that I am grateful. I know some Women do have it really hard, and I am not saying that those stories I heard were not true or that those Women didn't have a hard birth, but for every awful story I wish I heard one good story, so here is mine.
