Whitney imagined her ideal birth without being attached to machines, going in to spontaneous labor at home & laboring in her bathtub, birthing completely naturally without any medications.
Her labor and delivery did NOT go according to her plan, but her baby arrived HAPPY & HEALTHY… and she realized that is the very most important thing after all!
Her reality was GBS+ and PROM. Which landed her in the hospital on an IV, 27 hours before her baby was born. Whitney experienced antibiotics, induction, more antibiotics, more induction, a stretch & sweep, a fentanyl “nap” during transition & a fast delivery.

PROM can really throw things off. I was planning a birth center birth but 40 hour labor also landed me in the hospital on IV antibiotics.
