Do you have a definite birth plan in place? And if so, do you plan on having a home birth instead of checking into the hospital? If you do, then you'll want to hear about what happened to a mom named Betsy when her home birth visions didn't exactly play out the way she expected.
For one thing, she wound up being in labor for almost 10 days! She walked all over town and stayed active to try and get her baby moving, but nothing worked. And then when she finally thought she couldn't take it anymore, the weather took a turn for the worse, and she had to endure torrential rain for two days, making it impossible for her midwife to get to her house in the event that her baby was ready to be delivered.
She told Betsy to lie down on the couch, have a glass of red wine, and rest until the skies cleared.
To hear what happened next, take a look at the video clip below.
OMG. Can you believe how quickly that baby girl finally came once Betsy's water broke?! I guess it's only fitting that her baby showed up so fast considering just how long she had to wait for her arrival. And it sounds like even though she wound up being two weeks overdue, Betsy's home birth was everything she'd hoped it would be and more.
And I love how she said giving birth at home was like being at the Ritz-Carlton. That comparison makes home birth sound very appealing, doesn't it?
How do you expect your baby's birth to play out?
