I love Milena's story mainly because her mindset about giving birth is so similar to mine. She's also "weird" like me and wanted to know all the details about child birth. Education = power! Milena had a rapid labor or precipitous labor, which sounds like it would be a good thing to experience, but there are potential difficulties for the mother and baby. Milena has two adorable boys and her own business, Makeup by Milena, which you should check out!
When you're pregnant, it's remarkable how many people want to share their birth stories with you. However, people wanted to tell me about the pain or sudden complications they faced. In order to have the birth I envisioned for my daughter, I decided to ignore all these story tellers. Surprisingly, my answer was to turn to the internet. Here, I found a multitude of positive birth stories. Reading these anecdotes helped remove most of my fears associated with childbirth. These stranger's stories educated and most importantly, encouraged me. I want to share my story with the hopes that maybe I too can inspire and inform another mom to be.
