Unplanned Cesarean Birth
Long before even trying to conceive, Lindsey knew she wanted an intervention-free birth. Despite her intentions, research, planning, and extensive preparation, Lindsey and her husband learned their first parenting lesson (you are no longer in control!) at seemingly every turn, from pregnancy through delivery and postpartum. An induction lead to a 28 hour labor which ultimately ended in a cesarean section. Lindsey spent much of the fourth trimester trying to understand her birth experience and heal physically and emotionally.

This mama and dad have so much strength! I just listened to the episode in the car. I appreciate Lindsey coming on to share her story. One thing I wish wasn’t listed as a “resource” though, is the book On Becoming Babywise. Sleep training can be so damaging, and this book is perceived to be such a life saver. I just hope other mamas who are listening choose to look into the other side; babies aren’t supposed to sleep through the night. Frequent night waking is the biological norm.
