The Birth Story of Amelia

Remember my, “It’s a Small World” post? (If not, you can find it here:

Well, Stefanie had her baby! For Stefanie’s first birth, she attempted a natural birth at a birth center, but her poor bub was malpositioned and she required a cesarean birth. This time around, she opted for a hospital TOLAC (Trial of Labor After Cesarean). Stefanie found the best midwives in the area at UNT Health in Fort Worth, Tx and was able to succussfully have her VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)!!! Yay! It was an absolutely amazing experience and I was honored to be present. Stefanie prepared herself well, surrounded herself with amazingly supportive people including her husband, Andrew, her doula, Jessica Abbott, and of course, the midwives. And, Stefanie ROCKED HER BIRTH! Congratulations to Stefanie, Andrew and Big Brother, Finnley for the birth of Sweet, Baby Amelia.
