I am finally coming up for air. We missed class last night because I ended up going into labor last wednesday night. I went for a version with Dr. Abdulhak in Hackensack last Wednesday. Dr AAron had me scheduled for a c-section which i was determined not to attend:) Dr Abdulhak is also very supportive of vaginal delivery and also does breech delivers. The version was unsuccessful- stubborn little baby:) Well…Wednesday evening at about 11:30 my water broke. I called Abdulhak and he said to come in he would Meet us there. It was amazing….I did it…delivered my baby boy vaginally breech with all of the labor pains to enjoy. The dr was great– he let me move around and do whatever I wanted. I was very clear about the type of delivery I wanted…he also put my son directly on me and let the entire cord drain…. It was amazing! He came out with a 9.9 apgar score and was breastfeeding perfectly from the moment he was out. I really owe this process to your class. Once the information started flowing, I knew I needed something very different than I was set up with. Now I know why I wasn’t able to get into a birthing center– it wasn’t meant to be…I would have ended up with a c-section. Your class changed everything for me and my new son Dario. I know he is doing so well because of the choices we made. I felt prepared to handle any situation that arose and was empowered to tell everyone in hospital exactly what I wanted and needed and didn’t waiver. Thank you thank you thank you!
