Persephone's Beautiful Induced Labor

 It's been an amazing ride these last few weeks :) We had the baby last Tuesday! Can you believe it? I had to be induced because of a growth restriction and went in last Monday. I still ended up having a semi-natural birth with no epidural or pain killers.

 

I visualized my cervix opening and went into labor with only 6 mg of Pitocin with 1 hour of active labor and 5 min to birth... without ever pushing, just J breathing.

 

I owe it all to you and the confidence you helped me build throughout the program.

 

By the way, the midwife said she'd never witnessed a birth happen that quickly with anyone that had been induced or with a woman birthing their first baby :)

 

Persephone Renee Dugas was July 23rd 2019 at 4 pounds 7 ounces. She latched to breastfeed the next day, gained back her weight in 5 days after only losing 4% after birth and is the calmest baby ever.

 

Thank you again Estee! Here's a pic of the little bean at 1 day old
