Baby Tate: A Birth Story

It's hard to know where to begin the story of how baby Tate came into this world. No matter how much I remember and repeat it I can't possibly express the magnitude of the life-changing event. I guess I should start with our plan for Tate's arrival. My husband and I decided that we would like to try to have our son as naturally as possible. We signed up for Brio method birthing classes and started making our plans. The birthing classes were 2 hours long every week for 12 weeks. It was intense. We talked about things I had never even thought about. We learned so much. We were ready.

Our baby Tate's birth story starts after our doctor told us my blood pressure was too high on Friday morning. She told us to start considering induction because of the possibility of developing Preclampsia. We spent the weekend dealing with the fact that our rigid birth plan was being flipped upside down and inside out. We went to bed on Sunday night anxious about our Monday morning follow up.

  2. I'm so glad you shared your story! How amazing. I'm glad you had a great experience with non-medicated birth - it is so amazingly empowering, isn't it? You are awesome! I wish we still lived close so we could play :) Enjoy your sweet baby.
