Both my births ended up being cesareans, neither planned. Especially after the first, feeling like such a failure, Jenn helped me find the beauty in our process. Through our conversations, I learned the ever important first lesson of parenting, that it’s nice to go into things with a plan, but that you’ve got to let go of expectations and be flexible. I actually used many labor techniques to do with breathing and focusing that Jenn had taught me to get through the first few weeks of having a brand new person to take care of. I still hear her wise reminders and realize my time with her was well spent, even though I didn’t birth vaginally. Her support really reached much farther than that.
