Witnessing the birth of a baby has to be one of the most amazing things I have seen with my two eyes!
The pain a mother goes through for the amazing reward of holding her child just astounds me every time.
I had a c-section with each of my children so I feel that I have missed one of life's amazing events, the pain for the pleasure. I know this must sound strange, but I know for myself when I work hard for something I appreciate it more, and when I witness a mother in the throws of labour and then the immense joy they show when their baby is handed to them I can't help but think that that is all part of it.
I lay on a table feeling some tugging and don't get me wrong, I had carried my children, had difficult pregnancies, and was very much looking forward to meeting them, but I remember thinking, wow, I'm going to be a Mom around oh 4pm today and they just handed me a child. It's very surreal.
Don't mind me, I think I feel a bit left out of the Mom's labour club is all :)
Congratulations on this amazing miracle!
