**trigger warning- positive birth story**
Part 2 of 4!
I found out I was pregnant after being at altitude in South America and skiing in Chamonix.
I ate raw cheese fondue.
I experience meralgia parasthetica triggered by the positive stress of pregnancy.
During my pregnancy there were so many things I questioned, some I had to make a decision based on what felt right to me.
I knew what sort of birth I wanted which meant traveling back to Australia to find the right midwife.
