The Beautiful Homebirth of Sarah

Posted on July 13, 2011 at 7:36 AM

Much the same as my second child, I had been having Braxton-Hicks contractions thru most of this pregnancy. Towards the end, some of them were painful, and their intensity and frequency continued to increase. On a Tuesday in the late spring, in the afternoon, I started with bloody show...
