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.

Determination and Strength

If you have had a VBAC, are preparing for one, or even planned one that perhaps didn't come to pass as you wished, I would dare to say you're bold. I would dare to say your determined. I would dare to say you're fierce. I would say you are brave. To say what YOU want for YOUR birth. Not everybody does it. The system can almost seem like a factory. And when one stands up to say "My way," it can make things a little hard for the system to not have...

Turning Point

Have you had a turning point in your life? Where you just knew things would never, ever be the same? My water broke. My dress all wet. I threw it into the washing machine and just stood there. Looking at my familiar washing machine. That I used every day, multiple times in fact. It seemed so familiar to me, that washing machine. But what was happening to me in the moment, was not familiar. I was in labor and about to attempt what I was told not to.   As I...

A Few Important Things Before Baby

Today I sat holding my VBA3C baby. Not so much baby anymore. But it makes me think of the birth day. And I held this little peanut and felt it again. The way I felt when I first reached down and grabbed my baby from the doctor. The Birth day matters. It's such a holy God moment when new life comes and breathes its first breath. Only God gives life and the day a child enters the world, there's nothing like it. If you want your day to be the...

My VBA3C – A Dream Come True

It was hard. One of the hardest things I had done. In more than one way. But in the hardness, it felt holy. The air was different. The sounds were different. My awareness was different, as though nothing else mattered at all on the entire earth but was happening in me and for me. Though I moaned and groaned as I felt the contractions, in my heart I sang. I sang the songs that declared His promises, that sang of His strength, His faithfulness. I sang to Him as if...

Oh, I am in love and I don’t care who knows!

Over the weekend I attended a Gena Kirby Rebozo Workshop with Beautifully Connected. It was amazing and so of course I came home and practiced on my family. And then last night my sweet boy came down before bed asking if I could help him relax with the rebozo because it 'really relaxes me.' And it does! Do any of you doulas incorporate rebozo? Any of you mothers use it during labor? It's incredible, truly. ❤️ ...
