“My Labour lasted 50 hours!”
“My Labour started with back pain”
“After 30 hours of labour i was shattered”
I paced the room breathing through each contraction. The pain was intense. By 4am my waters broke and the midwife confirmed i was 5cm dilated and suffering from a back labor.
“By Midday i was fully dilated”
“I pushed for 5 hours and suddenly”
the midwife rushed out of the room returning with several others – i was terrified.
The umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck and i would need a forcep delivery. We were whisked into theater.
Olivia was finally here and we felt amazing!
