Birth Stories Roundup

My two childbirth stories could not be more different. When I was pregnant with my Charlie, I loved reading other people’s birth stories so I could prepare myself for what to expect.

Baby Brother Stroller’s Birth Story

Baby Brother Stroller is already 12 weeks old. It’s crazy how quickly time is passing, and even crazier that things are only getting marginally easier now. We’ve had a rough go of it. Before it’s all a distant memory I want to share my birth story. Labor was only about 14 hours long, which is […]
