It is amusing to me how two babies, made from the exact same mix of people can be so similar and different at the same time, starting by how they came to the world. So start my birth story:
Let’s start by saying I had never been scared of birth. Yes, I knew it would be a kind of pain I had never even been close to feeling, but I also knew I was gonna meet my babies. Also, I like to think that our bodies are wise, that nature is wise, and that if millions of women have survived birth this way for millions of years, I would too.
