Wow, what a boost of emotional support this morning to find out that one of my new favorite blogs, Nursing Birth, has made an entire post about a comment I left on her site! Nursing Birth is a blog written by a Labor and Delivery nurse who is very supportive of natural childbirth, and changing the culture of hospital birth. It's an excellent perspective from someone on the "inside" of the hospital birth scene. (Check out the link on the side bar of chun-beeks, under "our favorite blogs".)
Many of you are aware of our hopes and plans for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) with baby#2 (due around Thanksgiving). I normally don't spill lots of personal details here on chun-beeks, but I thought you might be interested in reading Nursing Birth's post about my comment to give you a peek into some of the latest details: The Ol' Bait and Switch.
I have been getting fabulous emotional support from my Bradley Method birth class teacher, my amazing doula, and now this post on Nursing Birth is just the emotional boost I was hoping for!
Hugs to everyone!
