We had a great birth class today with Susan Messina, a wonderful birth coach/doula in town. She helped us to identify and process some of our concerns about labor/delivery and afterward and maybe even more importantly, helped us come up with labor and delivery intentions – and a playbook of things to try.
Chris and I know intimately that there’s only so much we can control in labor and birth, but it feels good to be on the same page about what’s important to us.
Afterward we went on a (slow but beautiful) walk through Rock Creek Park. We’re trying to revel in time together just the two of us, but we are getting so excited to be a family of three. I can’t believe we’re going to meet her in just a few short months!
