Birth Lessons Learned From 4 Deliveries

-- Stop going to the hospital so early so I can spend more time at home with the kids (the fire station is close; if I actually start to deliver at home, they’d be here within 5 minutes and would be able to handle a hemorrhage).

-- Stop having water broken to hurry things along because it hurts worse and makes me panic when transition comes.

-- Have my doula friend come next time.

-- Eat while I have the chance (and pack my own snacks) because I practically had to beg for Jell-O at the hospital.

-- Continue to trust my instincts when they say all will be well and keep up the positive thinking and praying.
