Mama Natural Birth Course Helped Robin Achieve a Natural Twin Birth

  • When did you realize you were really in labor?

    Not until I had almost entered transition, as funny as that sounds! I'd been having mild contractions for days so I had sort of fallen into feeling it would never actually happen!

  • What was the most challenging thing about going natural?

    Standing our ground with the doctors. I already felt so vulnerable, I was thankful we had a firm birth plan and my husband was our advocate. (Although we knew things can change it helped to have a solid plan to begin with).

  • What was the most helpful thing you did to prepare for childbirth?

    The Mama Natural Birth Course! But really, it is AWESOME. So thankful especially for the circumcision information also!

  • What surprised you about your birth?

    How fast transition came on, it felt like a freight train!

  • Have a plan, and know your reasons why you made that plan. And really have support, be it your partner or a doula. My husband was my support and he really was a lifeline in helping me keep on track and encouraging me when I didn't think I could do it. He even reminded me to ride the waves with Jesus!
  • What pain relief strategies worked best?

    Breathing, holding my husbands hand and moaning, sometimes pretty loudly! Also closing my eyes through breathing, it helped shut out all the distractions so I could get though the moment.

  • What position did you end up delivering in?

    On my back, which wasn't my plan but it actually felt like the best at the time. I was thankful for the position when they had to reach in and turn my second twin before I pushed her out!

  • How did it feel to hold your baby for the first time?

    Completely surreal, I remember looking at them and really feeling like "where did you come from?!". It's so incredible that they had been growing inside me, two perfect tiny humans!

  • What advice can you give to other mamas who want to go natural?

    Have a plan, and know your reasons why you made that plan. And really have support, be it your partner or a doula. My husband was my support and he really was a lifeline in helping me keep on track and encouraging me when I didn't think I could do it. He even reminded me to ride the waves with Jesus!
