    Maybe it’s bc his is the first birth story I’ve read since becoming pregnant, but this made me cry. . . And I’m sitting at my desk at work! Lol.beautiful story, beautifully written and for once, a birth story made me more excited than scared. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Very sweet. My daughter was 8 days late and I had to be induced as well. My contractions wouldn’t come so they had the pitocin so high that they were coming on top of each other and it wore me out. I lasted as long as I could without an epidural and after 16 1/2 hours of labor and only 7 cm had to have a c section. My daughter was 9 lbs 5 oz and 23 in long and sunny side up (face up). We didn’t know that until afterwards so I would have never gotten her out due to her size and being face up. She essentially got stuck. Hahah! And I’m 5’9” so def not petite. I love birth stories. Congratulations to y’all and your sweet family.

    Birth stories always make me tear up! Thanks for your honesty in sharing your decision making, it gives me comfort knowing when it is my time to have children that we don’t need to have it all figured out! And thanks for being a Godly example but trusting the Spirit’s leading!

    This is the most incredible story I have ever heard. So beautiful and sweet. Congratulations!!!

    You’re a strong mama, and beautiful photos of such a special day, but honestly I am shocked that your OB was so quick to recommend induction when there is no medical necessary reason to….technically an 8 lb baby is not considered “big” even for a petite woman. Happy for you and your family but disappointed in the lack of better prenatal education for mamas-to-be/new moms.

    I’ll admit, I haven’t fully read a birth story only because the ones I’ve attempted to read would become very monotone. YOURS kept me so engaged and I cried nearly the whole time!! I’ve maybe cried 5 times total throughout my whole pregnancy!!
    You are such a strong girl and you’ve given me so much peace in choosing to just trust the process no matter how long, how painful, or how unsettling it may be.

    Kuddos to you, mama! Rhett is such a blessed little boy to have you and Daniel as his parents.

    Xoxoxo, Aly Mendez
