Monique thought she was going to have a vaginal birth with an epidural. She was scheduled to be induced just after 40 weeks, but as it goes with labor, things took a bit of a turn and you’re going to hear about all those twists and turns in today’s birth story episode.
Being a recent transplant from Suriname in South America, she was still adjusting to a strange country when she got pregnant. Going into motherhood away from home meant she had to be extra prepared. She did a ton of research, hired doulas, and asked friends for help. Because of all the work she did to make sure she was supported, she had the beautiful birth she deserved.
