Birth, Preparing for Parenting, Wordless Wednesday

This week we asked: What does labor look like?

(Read more about preparing for birth on our resource page.)

From Jess: “Blissful natural hospital birth, after 4½ weeks of labor with 2½ minute
contractions the entire time. I still did it with just my hubby, mom and myself!!”

Jess blogs at Quacks and Waddles.

From Kristin: Adoptive parents experience labor of a different kind in the hospital waiting room.

From Charise: “The fruit of my labor!”

Charise blogs at I Thought I Knew Mama.

Baz laboring with Daddy to plant some berry bushes for Mommy on Mother’s Day.

Emily blogs sporadically at Embrita Blogging.

From Lauren: “Both of our labors included a walk down to the beach,
to listen to the waves, sway to the surges,
and have Sam pick me out a special birthing stone.”

Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

Julia was glad to have her mom and 3-year-old daughter support her
(as well as her doula, husband and midwives) during the birth of her son.

Julia blogs at A Little Bit of All of It.

A solid labor support team is so important!

Labor is
always worth the work, in the end.
