    Default Aw! The way it should be!

    So, my best friend gave birth at a birth center (same one as emansmom) a week ago. She just got around to writing her birth story and sending it to me.

    I won't post the whole thing, because that wouldn't really be appropriate, but, my favorite line was this:

    It was amazing Mara, all they (the midwives) did was listen to me, talk with me, encourage me, and they knew just by how I was acting and the noises I was making that it was time! They NEVER examined me!

    Sigh, doesn't that just bring tears to your eyes? I'm so happy for her because her first birth was basically an induction after her water breaking and having no contractions.

    I know during my DD's birth one of the things that annoyed me the most was being checked. Anyway...I just wanted to share that.... I'm just so happy for her.

    Congrats to your friend! I'm glad she had a wonderful birth. Next time, I want a provider who really won't do vaginal exams unless I ask for them.

    That's so wonderful and encouraging. I'm really hoping that that's how my midwives will be. From what I have seen so far, it seems likely. They said that they'll be as hands off as I want them to be. Yay for your friend having a wonderful birth!
