Iya’s Birth Story

Happy 100th day of life to my baby girl, Iya!

100 days ago we were in our post partum suite at the hospital bonding and just getting to know each other. I was pretty low-key about my pregnancy while I was pregnant because I just wanted to focus on being healthy and happy. Ever since giving birth I’ve been looking forward to sharing my story with you guys! 100 days of sleep deprivation is the reason for my delay lol!

I filmed a sit down video but it’s quite rambly (as usual) and almost an hour long, yikes! Here you’ll find the more organized, abridged, written version ha.

My labor & delivery story isn’t what I was expecting at all. I kept picturing a huge gush of water and a shriek of “the baby’s coming!!” following by frantic racing to the hospital like I always saw on TV but my experience was completely anti-climatic. Something clicked in my head when I hit 36 weeks – I started to feel anxious, nervous, unprepared, scared… all of the above. I was four weeks out from my due date (July 7th) and nothing was ready, our birthing class was scheduled to begin the following week, my maternity shoot the day after that, i had to wash all of baby’s things most of which I still had to buy, I needed to get waxed, get my nails done… and to top it all off I hadn’t had a pre-natal appointment in weeks! I had no idea what was going on with me or the baby, I didn’t know if she was in position, if I was dilated, nothing! I was just counting down the days to my appointment which was at 37 weeks…
