In 2009 (with my first pregnancy) I didn’t know how to navigate the system and advocate for myself. I knew I wanted a vaginal birth. And since everyone one of my family members have had successful pregnancies and deliveries I knew it was obvious I would too. So when I found myself very pregnant nearly 43 weeks with ruptured membranes…
We share so many pictures of pregnancy and births (at home and in the hospital), but few cesarean birth pictures! I am still in awe at these amazing pictures of a child being born. Mother, Christina Walker and pictures taken by daddy, James Rachal. Alyssa Mae was 9 lbs 4oz and 21 inches.
