I decided to write a book after the birth of my fourth child because honestly, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I had worked so hard towards my VBA3C. It seemed weird, even with four kids to not have something to work on and prepare, besides normal life. My heart was overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me and I knew I wanted to share more of not just my story, but I really believe this is all about Him.

Birth Plans… For You or Them?

Do you care what others think of your birth plans?
Is it something that concerns you.
That you try to tip toe around with others, making excuses even regarding *your* birth and pregnancy?

I have been known as a people pleaser. But when it came to my fourth pregnancy, I decided *I wanted to birth my baby the way I felt best more than I wanted to please others.*
More than every doctor I talked to.
More than my friend I saw at the library.
More than acquaintances or best friends.

I had to do what my gut told me despite what other people said to me or thought about me. I didn’t share my heart with many because my energy was too precious to expend. I protected myself and my heart.

But ultimately, people will always have an opinion.

I surprised myself during pregnancy because I felt like in some ways, my people pleasing tendencies were being broken off. I had to do what was right for me. And I encourage you to do what is right for you.
