“I will say – compared to my other deliveries – while they were still amazing and special, nothing was quite like this, and the bond you often talked about in class was very much more intense for me. Not just the bond between baby and I, but also the bond between R and I. Going through something that physical, relying so much on R – it was a very special experience that is hard to put words to. (Giving birth) was the most intense and hardest thing I have ever done. I am so happy I took the class, or I couldn’t have done it. I was able to give baby M his first bath with R, which I never could do with the other boys because I was still recovering from the epidural and couldn’t stand up on my own. Just being able to get out of bed to use the bathroom whenever I needed was wonderful. I was only at the hospital for that day – and was able to be at home by the next day. I relied so much on what you taught us, what I read in the book, and what I practiced all these months for. I relied SO MUCH on R and his help. It was an overwhelming, amazing, exhausting and the most rewarding experience I have ever had.” ~ET
