Part 3 of 4!

**trigger warning- positive birth story**

I was always curious about what it would feel like to birth a baby.

I had a plan and an intention for a homebirth and lotus birth (I describe what this is in this episode).

I wrote a 3 page plan to keep everyone in the loop, my plan included the hospital and possible c-section too.

I wrote a letter to my parents because we didn’t want them to see our new baby for 48 hours (and we had her in their house!)

I sat two Vipassana courses during my pregnancy. One 10 days before I gave birth.

I approach everything with curiosity and intention but not won’t expectation.

Here is the story of my painless home birth and lotus birth.
