The stunning Amy Simmons with her sons Connor Matthew (4) and Breccan Allan (3 mo). Amy says that she did things very traditionally with her first pregnancy and just went with the flow of an OB and hospital birth. Her water broke without the onset of labor and they headed to the hospital. Amy was given Pitocin to move things along and then an epidural. Connor was born vaginal but she had a third degree tear. Amy had a bit of a difficult time postpartum and eventually became a lactation counselor which helped her to feel more empowered. When she was pregnant with Breccan she studied to become a doula and hopes to go to Midwifery school after she spends a year at home. Amy says that she felt capable of making much different decisions with her second pregnancy and birth and she was able to have a wonderful, natural delivery with midwife assistance. Breastfeeding is going amazingly well with Breccan also and Amy says that she in a place of complete joy these days.
