My birth story

Social Good Moms asked us to share about our birth story and how we felt after birth with Save the Children. I think back often on Peanuts birth and how many changes I will be making the next time around.  Since this was my first birth, I really didn't know what to expect.  I put my full faith in my midwife and doctor.  This was such a mistake.
