Our Second Medication-Free Hospital Birth

This Is The Story Of Vicky’s Second Natural Birth. She did This Twice. Vicky Does Computers And Mountain Trails And Is Obviously Superhuman.


Here’s how my husband, Ryan, summed up the birth of our second child.

“Wow. We made that look routine.”

My water broke on an evening where we were both well-rested and well-fed. We had no loose ends at work and it was perfect timing for my mother to watch our older son. We casually labored at home and then moseyed into the hospital right at transition. We got transferred to the delivery room shortly before the urge to push and then nine minutes later, we had our second son. It was a three hour labor. It was so fast, the frozen orange juice we packed to drink after birth was still frozen.

We had a very positive experience. Sickeningly positive? Perhaps. But since there are a lot of birth horror stories out there, I think it is important to share the good stories as well. : )

    Oh wow. I don’t believe I’ve ever been reblogged before! : )

    I’m not sure about being superhuman, but I do happen to be wearing a Superman shirt today. I put it on to impress my oldest son (It worked).
