The joyful Jillian Goddard and her son Bradley Dean (3.5 months).
Jillian had an easy and enjoyable pregnancy. The night before her 36 week ultrasound they had to put down the family dog and she feels that the stress and crying caused Bradley to turn breech. She had planned for a natural delivery but he hadn't flipped by his due date and she was already contracting so she had to deliver via cesarean. She felt the experience was cold and creepy and it wasn't the entrance to motherhood she expected. They let her see him quickly before he was taken away for an hour. Jillian's recovery went better than she'd expected and breastfeeding has been awesome so far. Jillian chose to participate so that she can embrace the aspects of motherhood she feels she missed out on in her birth experience.
