The lovely Robin Sharpe with her daughter Sloan (22 months). Robin had a healthy pregnancy and had hoped for a natural labor and delivery but needed a couple of interventions. After about 9 hours, both Sloan's and her heart rate became elevated, and she was faced with taking morphine, having a cesarean or opting for an epidural. She chose the epidural and ended up pushing for 4 hours before Sloan was born but her girl was healthy and happy albeit a little sleepy. She took a good day and a half to start nursing well and Robin dealt with some pain the first week but they went on to have a great relationship, until Sloan self-weaned at 17 months. Robin tore during delivery and had a difficult recovery both physically and emotionally. She was fearful of having a bowel movement for a week and has had a difficult time being intimate with her husband without pain from feeling her scar.
