Community Medical Center. Missoula Montana.
I felt very familiar with the doors I was about to enter. The double doors. The white, white, bright room. The OR. I am a cesarean mama of four children. I have four stories. I will share them with you, just ask. Mine are filled with emotion, uncertainty, anxiety, anticipation, surrender, complications, fear, tears, joy, babies.
I love my stories.
Birth mama was just glad I could be in the OR documenting this transformative day. Then I was invited to come around to the other side of the curtain by the OB! You can just imagine the goosebumps I got. What a gift to give. I stepped gingerly, was barely breathing.
Quietly baby came, budding into the light.
