We’re adding another three hundred and thirty to our donation count! I had the opportunity to meet an amazing mom of a sweet little six week old baby girl. While we chatted, she shared with me a little bit about her labor & delivery; her WATER BIRTH!! You guys, let me just stop right here and say... while having a baby with an epidural is no picnic, you mamas who have done it with no epidural, water birth, etc.. you guys are truly MVP’s in my book. And while I whole heartedly applaud you, I can say without a shadow of doubt, I could never. I’m quite certain I can say with the most confidence that I know my limitations & even what I can push myself to outside of my limitations, something having Jaxon has taught me. But had I not had an epidural, I think my labor & delivery story would be VERY different. (Which by the way, I can’t wait to share that story with you!) I think something inside me changed when I became a mama. I always enjoyed hearing my friends labor and delivery stories, but now having gone through it, I LOVE hearing everyone’s different experiences.
This amazing mama, Jessica, said she has even made an almost 2 hour drive (one way) to pick up milk for her little one. I love meeting all these local moms who are working so hard to pick up breastmilk for their little ones! Keep it up and thank you for inspiring me! And while Jessica said she’s able to pump enough for one bottle daily, I love that this mama is being proactive and getting herself a little stash of milk for her baby girl!
