Cadence's From-Marathon-To-Sprint Waterbirth Story

Our familyLike many others, I have heard enough birthing experiences or rather “horror stories”  from mothers, families and friends. So deep inside my heart, there was no doubt that giving birth is one of the world’s most scariest and painful thing to do.

Ros's 7th Baby Warmth-filled En Caul Unassisted Home-Waterbirth Story

Received!Some moms asked me about the differences between this and hospital births. The feeling of having baby in my arms for the first time is the same, but this time round it’s warmth all over - from friendship, and love from hubby, and the water. Hospital environment is cold and the air-cond is too cold (yeah a big issue for me.) Even that made me stressed. Freedom, laughter that made me relax, seeing my baby staring at me underwater, being the first one to lift baby up to my arms... a truly amazing experience and I thank Allah over and over for that.

Ling's Beautiful Unassisted En Caul-Lotus-Home Birth Story

nuchal hand: hand by the face and cord around neck. Baby rotated to birth his boWith about two long contractions that seemed like two heavy pushes, the baby’s head was finally visible and it was becoming so intense that I couldn’t stand and the baby was out finally with the sac that looked like a thin layer of veil over his head. Within a split second the sac broke and there was like a gush of water. The baby came oozing out that neither of us can catch him.
