I helped my friends at the birth of their first child yesterday. It was amazing. And it proceeded more or less as planned. I am filled with joy for them! But this also made me mourn my own birth experience which was filled with fear and uncertainty due to complications. Nothing really to share or request, except that I thought a lot about One Wild Life: Birth during the day. It seemed perfect.
@Meghan that is wonderful you could be there for your friends. I also had difficult long births with my babies, so I understand the mourning. So many friends of mine have had amazing birth stories, and even some have done it completely on their own. Jealousy sometimes creeps in. I am thankful for my children though, and whatever I had to go through to get them here.
