Birth Story Submissions Needed!

If you are interested in sharing your birth story with me, I'd be most grateful.  It's for one of my assignments.

Your story can be about a child who passed away or is still living; the only criteria is that it needs to be an in-depth story of your pregnancy and birthing experiences.  Make sure to let me know how you fed yourself (physically, spiritually, etc), the type of labor assistants you had (family, friends, partner, doula), your care provider and location (home/hospital/birthing center, midwife/doctor/none), any childbirth prep you did, etc. Also, let me know how you were impacted post-birth.  What did your postpartum period look like?  How did you (do you) feel about your body post-baby?  How do you feel about your relationship with your partner and the type of parent you are/they are?   Did you have any birth interventions? (drugs, physical interventions, c/s)  How do you view your experience now?

Ideally, I'd be able to meet with you and chat about this in person, so, if you are local to Montgomery Co, PA, I would LOVE to treat you to lunch/coffee/tea and chat!  But, otherwise, if you would take the time to write this down and email it to me, I'd be extremely appreciative!

What's the deadline? I'd like to help you, but it takes me forever to set up something like that.
