I had an easy pregnancy and birth with Emma. She came on Father’s Day last year and what a gift she has been! Labor was again less than an hour with the midwife arriving afterwards. Emma was born in the the caul weighing in at a petite 6 pounds 4.5 ounces.
Emma has been a very sweet and laid back baby, but I had a difficult time postpartum. I lost my grandmother and was trying to do too much emotionally and physically, which took its toll. I had to admit that I’m older and that I have limits, not always such an easy lesson. I was blessed to have good friends that helped take care me.
