Two hospital births: two completely different experiences. Logan’s first birth began like many first time moms- one false alarm followed by showing up to the hospital early enough to be put on the cascade of inversions fast track. Water broken by the doctor, being told she couldn’t leave the bed with water broken, an epidural even though she wasn’t in pain, a routine episiotomy, and 12 hours after her first contraction, Logan gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl.
Determined to do things differently the second time, Logan did everything she could to prepare including changing practices and hospitals. After deciding to stay the night close to the hospital after her last doctors appointment, Logan had a crazy short and intense labor and gave birth to their son only 30 minutes after arriving to labor and delivery.
