GREAT article

Please take time to read this great article about a recent study that was done re. labor progression. I was almost shouting, "amen" as I read it because it took me a LOOONNNNGGG time to dilate with my 2nd son. My entire labor ended up being 28 hours. The labor chart that most drs go by was developed it the 1950s and it simply out of date. Enjoy the read!

Isaiah's birth

I am planning on getting the blog posts rolling in 2011. :) I decided to kick it off with the story of a little boy that I love very much. His parents and I have been close friends ever since our oldest kids were about 1. They are so dear to our family. To read the story of Isaiah's amazing birth, click here. Also take some time to explore the "Sweet Birth Doula Services" blog while you are there reading Isaiah's story and be encouraged with many other wonderful birth stories! Enjoy!!!
