Today Megan, mother of three is sharing her experience of being pregnant with and birthing Isla.....
I was diagnosed with whooping cough when I was about 6 months pregnant. I was sick for a long time. That was truly awful!
I'm sure that is what bounced my baby into a transverse position....non stop coughing! I spent a lot of time doing yoga as I recovered and trying to get baby to shift but she wouldn't! My doctor told me that a C-section was necessary for me to survive the birth when I was 36 weeks.
I begged the universe to help me out as I was terrified of surgery. I went in to labour the day my final "deciding" scan was due (38wks). But I never went to the scan.....I just walked and walked and walked for over 10 hrs then presented to my wonderful midwives and they had to do a simple "twist" of Isla (which _did_ hurt!) but she was born a minute or so later, perfectly healthy and me untorn and totally fine. We were both home within 1.5 hrs. :)
I am soooo glad I trusted myself. And I will truly love Marie and Jenny (my mids) forever.
Thanks for sharing Megan, Cynthia xx
