**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.
