Victoria suffered an early, yet stressful, miscarriage with her first pregnancy, but quickly became pregnant again. Her pregnancy was relatively uneventful. She ended up being induced for postdates at the hospital after her at-home methods for induction did not work. After a night of very painful labor and close contractions, Victoria was able to get an epidural at 0 cm dilation. Following this, labor progressed rapidly. Although she had been a postpartum nurse, Victoria had a difficult experience breastfeeding and adjusting to the exhaustion of motherhood. She also ended up requiring surgery postpartum for a cyst discovered at 41 weeks.
