Good reminder about letting our births define what we learn from them instead of trying to plan it.
Great post! I know I needed to learn that lesson the hard way, although I was one of the 'lucky ones' who on my second homebirth attempt HAD that idyllic, empowering, etc... example of a 'perfect birth'. This time, I'm definitely approaching birth with NO expectations placed upon myself, my body or my baby. There is no 'fail' this time for me.
A great post.
I really liked this one as well, and shared the link with a friend who might find it helpful. I know I would have found it really helpful had I read it in the weeks following DS's birth!
