As many of you guys may already know, last month on January 11th, our daughter Honor Florence Crosby Hunkin was born. What you guys may not know, is that her labor and delivery story was quite quick and rather dramatic (in a good way!). I asked on my Instagram a few weeks ago whether you’d all like to see a video about our birth story, and we got an overwhelming response encouraging us to do one – so here we are!
I felt that it was important to share our safe, positive story to encourage other mums to be out there. I know from personal experience that there are so many terrifying horror stories out there that people love to tell you when you’re pregnant, and so many mixed messages that you read online. I was so worried about the birthing process before it actually happened, and I feel so blessed that it went so well, and that we’ve been recovering so nicely. Watch the video below to see what my labor was like, my thoughts on epidurals, and how Mackenzie did during the whole process (hint: he was amazing). Thank you so much for all of your love and support during this special time for our little family!
Any of you mummas out there who follow me: I’d love to hear your birth stories too! Tell me in the comments below.
