The amazing Kate De La Rosa with her daughters Sofia (3) and Alba (14 months). Kate had healthy pregnancies with both of her girls. With Sofia, she had planned and hoped for a natural birth in the hospital. At her check up about a month prior to her due date, she learned that her amniotic fluid was almost all gone and she would have to go right to the hospital to be induced. Once she got to the hospital she continued to encounter things that made her uncomfortable. She mentioned that at one point she was required to allow three students in a row physically examine and check her dilation because she was at a teaching hospital. While it was not in her plan to have medical intervention, she was able to have a healthy vaginal delivery. When Kate got pregnant with Alba, she knew she wanted to do things differently so she changed hospitals and put herself in the care of midwives versus an OBGYN. She was very happy with her care and went into labor independently this time. She progressed so fast that she was 10cm by time she got to the hospital and gave birth to Alba 20 minutes later. Kate has been able to have a breastfeeding relationship with both of her girls. She lost her milk supply around 10 1/2 months with Sofia and is still nursing Alba today.
