So, without further ado, part 1!
Ebba’s Birth Story
I've divided the Story into 3 parts, so this will be part 1, all about how my husband and I prepared for the birthing, because the preparation was SO important in how things ended up. Next will come the actual story itself, and then, finally, segment 3 will be tips and tidbits that didn't make it into the story.
These are just the choices that we made so we could have the perfect birthing for us. That doesn't mean these would be the right choices for everyone, but the point is that the more you know ahead of time, the better your birthing can be. Take these decisions carefully!
Once I've finished this 3 part birthing story, I will address some further topics in more detail, such as why to have a doula, the difference between midwife care and OBs (at least here in Vancouver), and the issue of "estimated due dates," induction, and real gestational times. So stay tuned!
