Hi Holistic South Family,
I can’t believe little Liam is already 4 weeks old, I have been thinking about my amazing birth experience and how to put it into words, and figured I should just sit down and start writing. I am beyond thrilled that I was able to have the birth that I dreamed of and prepared for. I loved coming to every appointment, being greeted with hugs by everyone. It was really special to have the appointments in the same place as the birth so I could imagine what everything would be like. Milenia worked so hard with us in figuring out our insurance issues, especially since we switched insurances about a month before the birth. Our midwife, Mary Allen, was so supportive and receptive of the way I chose to birth. I could feel that she fully trusted me to birth how I wanted and was so supportive in that. There was plenty of room for everyone in the Goddess suite. I will never forget my labor and birth at the birth center. After a walk, when I was dilated to 8 centimeters, I got into the perfectly warm tub and had my amazing water birth that I had envisioned for so long. The team at the birth center made us feel at home every step of the way and I felt perfectly cared for throughout the entire experience from pregnancy to birth. Thank you all so much.
Love, Melanie, Tony, Liam and Big Brother!
