Second Hospital Birth Story
Lauren gave birth to her second child in July 2019 at 40 weeks and 2 days. She was determined to try again for an unmedicated birth after needing an epidural in her first delivery and was successful only because there was no time for the anesthesiologist to arrive. Though it was a short labor and delivery, it was intense and far more difficult than her first, slower delivery.
Lauren Alexander Bio
Lauren lives with her wife of three years in Sonoma County, California. She gave birth to a daughter in October 2017 and a son in July 2019. She hopes that other lesbian couples trying to start families can learn from her and her wife’s experience of planning for and starting a family.
