Quoting October Rust:" I say kudos to you and every other mom that does that! I would honestly love to do all of that, but ... [snip!] ... (I was able to get at least a month in on both my girls though), and I am too much of a pussy to do a natural birth xP"
I hate that I wasn't able to do this stuff with Zora. I was SO close to having an all natural birth but I didn't know how to tell my OB that I didn't want pitocin, and that I wanted to labor more before going in for an "emergency" c-section. I'm determined that next baby will be all natural, and I want to get a doula so I can have someone advocating for me since apparently SO is too much of a pussy lol.
BFing was a bust because they gave me a depo shot in the hospital that dried up my milk supply, and no one in my family is supportive of cloth diapering so I can't do that as long as I'm living with my parents.
