And now click over to Mama Birth for "Obstetric Lie #100--Failure to Progress."
And don't forget to link up on yesterday's post with your birth story and/or birth pictures! Regardless of how your baby made his or her entrance, it's a powerful thing to grow a baby and to become a mother! Celebrate Empowered Birth Week with me!
