“It’s a false alarm. Your contractions are decreasing, I can tell in your face you’re not happy, but maybe you’re dehydrated a little – I’m so sorry.” Nothing but a flashback of sitting in Labor and Delivery for Kai as the midwife told me the same, with much less grace and a disclaimer that this was what “first time moms do.”
|Our Nurse Dana!
My mom was the big coach and kept me from all of my “I cant’s.” Mike was exactly what I needed with a side of humor only he can get away with, holding my hand calmly reminding me I was doing great (and I think at one point when the head was crowing he was going to pass out haha). And lastly was our phenomenal nurse Dana who was our biggest advocate despite the doctor at one pointing
stating we needed a c-section. No words can ever thank her.
