It takes a village to raise a child, as it does to give birth to a healthy baby. So let me express my deepest gratitude to all the wonderful practitioners who cared for me during my pregnancy and birth: the Midwives at Norwalk Hospital (Sara Church), who cared for me during my first pregnancy and well into my second; Circle for Life Midwifery, who took me in during my third trimester and helped me have the natural birth I'd been hoping for; Caroline Doula Nine Months who gave me wonderful support before and during labor, I'm not sure how I would have done it without her; and HypnoBirthing of CT for teaching me great techniques for a calmer birth.
I have to thank the amazing people who made yesterday such an amazing experience. Caroline Doula Nine Months who helped so much & made my labor quicker & smoother, my midwife Sarah for bringing my baby into the world safely, my amazing birth partner & life partner Newell Wakeman & my mom for her support. The birth center at St. Vincent's for providing the perfect setting to bring all of this together. Thank you all! My final birth experience was truly memorable. —
