36 weeks down, 4 to go

The past week has been crazy busy and the past couple of days in particular, have been rough on me physically and emotionally, but baby and I have made it to week 36 and for that, I am extremely grateful.

I am planning on having another natural birth, and barring any major complications, I hope to achieve that goal. Most of my Black sisterfriends are not into natural, home or water births. My own sister thinks I'm crazy for choosing a natural birth. So when I came across this video of a beautiful sister giving birth naturally, I really felt empowered and inspired. The video is tastefully done and not gory at all. If you have a few minutes, check it out below.

My wife wanted to do a natural birth and made it through 24 hours of labor without any medication. Unfortunately, the baby got stuck and they had to do a cesarean. She was really disappointed and I felt really bad because she had worked so hard. I definitely think natural is the way to go if you can. Kudos to you for making it through it and wanting to take it on again!
