Aiden was born July 3rd 2:46am

Here’s the post every one has been waiting for!!!

This is the story of Aiden’s birth.

July 2nd I went into the midwife and I was measuring over 42weeks and still 6 days away from my due date. The midwife

suggested to use caster oil and lets get the show on the road.

I had a pasta dinner ad then a couple hours later took the caster oil with some OJ and baking soda. I was told later that the baking soda is to make the drink more like a soda but with mine it didn’t mix and instead I got the baking soda in one clump and it was nasty. Since I have been having contractions for months, my midwife was sure this would work and I’d be in labor.

My two midwives arrived about 1030pm. The caster oil began to work about 11pm. Dale and I were joking and laughing the whole time. I kept saying, “there is no way we are having a baby tonight; this is way to easy.” I just was think about how previously it was such an ordeal and painful. No pitocin and using bradley method; what a difference!!

At 1:37am my water broke. I got in the shower for a few minutes. The midwife asked me on a scale 1-10 how strong they were. I said, “6 with a couple 9s.” She told me to get out and use the bathroom while they set up the birth pool. With in a couple minutes they were now 9s. She told me to lay on the bed for a minute to check dialation and hear the baby’s heart beat before getting into the pool. By this point they were all 9s if not all 10s. But still doing ok.

I got in the pool and it felt great. The warm water definitely took the edge off the contraction. I was going every two minutes and I had Aiden in my arm at 2:46am

It was an awesome, peaceful experience giving birth at home. I hope to never go back to the hospital for another birth of my future kids
