5 years on Friday...
5 years since my baby was born.
|Not my fave picture, but wanted to show the difference b/w|
Brighton's birth and the other two.
5 years since my world was rocked.
5 years since horrible and traumatic memories were made that haunt me to this day.
5 years since the day I thought I wasn't going to make it to see my baby grow up.
5 years ago a passion for education about pregnancy, our bodies and the miracle of natural childbirth was born.
Don't ever underestimate the power and the impact that childbirth has on a woman. It is life-changing. Make it a good change by being as educated as possible on the risks of EVERY procedure. I wouldn't change a thing about my first experience, not because it was great, because it wasn't. But because it changed everything about me, my family and the way we live. God is good.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28.
