And so she did!

I got to attend another little breechling yesterday as a doula with our beloved Dr. Denny. What a strong mama! Oh, my.
She and her husband live in rural WI and at 38 weeks when her local OB told her that her baby was breech and he was scheduling a cesarean, she just knew that surgical birth didn't make sense for all breeches. That's when she started her journey. Based on her inner knowing she got online and found Dr. Hartung and myself (I got to be her doula).
Isn't her connection to her inner sense wonderful. I could cry, its so heartening to have someone come to her knowing with no birth community, no exposure, in this time, on this topic. She felt that women could birth their breech babies. And so she did.
