1. Thank your for this article (and for all your articles). I love your blog! I’m an italian blogger and an activiste mother in preserving human right in childbirth! I would also ask your authorisation to translate this article in italian (obviously quoting the original author and source and sending you the link). Could it be possible?
    Thank you so much.

  2. Hi Aprille! I’m a HypnoBirthing practitioner in Canada. I’m gathering positive birth stories for a book I’m writing. I’m especially looking for cesarean births. Moms facing a surgical birth need to know it can still be a wonderful experience. If you’d like to share yours, I’d love to connect with you. Thank you!

    • Hi Debby. I got this and your email. I’m still working through some emotions and thoughts surrounding Little Brother’s birth and would prefer for the story to remain here on my blog. Thank you for thinking of me, though, and feel free to share his birth story and the posts from this series on social media or with other moms you know.

    I needed to hear this. So much. I’ve spent all day today replaying my “failed” VBAC in my head. It has already been two months since my second baby was born by Cesarean and I have so much emotional aftermath to deal with. I thought I was getting better but by now no one around me wants to hear or talk about it anymore so all my thoughts and feelings surrounding the birth are just stuck torturing me, and I haven’t found anyone who ‘gets’ what I’ve been through. It’s nice to read this and know that someone out there understands, and has been through the same thing.
