Guest Post at TouchstoneZ

I have a Guest Post today at TouchstoneZ:  Gentle Parenting and Mindful Living Off the Mat.

Won't you join me there?

I talk about my experience of Julian's birth on July 13, 2010.  Here is a little excerpt to peak your interest:

...The midwife announced that I was dilated to 9cm. On the next contraction I jumped onto the bed and the baby's head emerged. I flipped from my hands and knees onto my back just in time for the midwife to catch the baby and lay him on my chest.

He cried. I cried. Then I nearly passed out as I experienced pain far worse than labour.

I didn't know anything about my baby at that point, but I knew something was happening that had not happened after my previous 3 births....
