Thank you so much for sharing your story and pictures of your beautiful daughter, Christine! It sounds like you did an amazing job delivering beautiful Selin:).

Incidentally, I am currently shopping around for a doula and I can't even believe that your doula didn't show up when you told her you needed her. That's freakin' ridiculous. But another story altogether...you have your daughter and that's all that matters:).

Selin is absolutely beautiful, Christine! Thanks so much for sharing your story.

And I can't believe how your doula treated you; that's ridiculous.

Christine,

I loved your birth story. I made it all the way through because like you I love reading a birth story. Shame on your doula/chiropractor. She was supposed to be there to support you even if you were 2cm. She can't decide when you need the support if you were in labor. I too would have felt very irritated and not want to speak to her. I am so glad you had your DH and mom to support you and a wonderful mw and nurses.

Glad you and the baby are doing well and that she is nursing well and gaining her weight. Swaddling is so important because those hands get to going and they wake themselves up if they are that free. That is awesome that you may stay home for 6 mos. I wish I was going to stay home that long.

She is beautiful and congratulations on your safe delivery!!!
