A Healthy Baby Isn’t All That Matters
By Christy Fiscer (Birthkeeper)
Published in Midwifery Today Issue 87 and Truebirth.com

There are so many details of my cesarean that I have either left unwritten, or have written in fragments in various locations. A reply back to an online thread regarding the “safety” of a cesarean; or to a mom who is being told that her baby will be too big and she needs to have her baby surgically removed.

it's finally real. i wasn't imagining things. i am, indeed, with child! we finally got to hear the heartbeat too. so cute, and speedy (though i totally spaced and forgot to ask what the rate was...durr).

i have to go back next week because they scheduled me too early for the NT test...and the baby wasn't long enough. that's ok, it just means i get more pictures next week :-)

without further adoCollapse )

Welcome to april_2009, a birth month community for moms due in or around the month of April.

Once you have joined the community, please post an intro. The form for the intro post can be found on our profile page.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the community rules. All members must agree to follow the community rules in order to remain in the community. You can comment acknowledging your agreement here.

This community is supportive and encouraging of natural pregnancy and birth. Others are welcome to join, regardless of their pregnancy and birth plans, but should keep the community's philosophies in mind. 042009 is another great April birth month community for women who are less focused on natural pregnancy and birth.

If you have books, movies, or websites to share with the group, please feel free to do so!

Welcome aboard! I hope you have great pregnancies!
