The amazing Amber Zrust with her daughter Rozzlyn (2). Amber is also mom to Izzaq (7) Zavery (6) and is currently 10 weeks pregnant with baby number 4. She's had healthy pregnancies but not quite the births she had hoped for. She was told that Izzaq was measuring way too small for his age and that she needed to get him out and induce 5 weeks early. She felt pressured into doing it and the induction took without issue. She didn't feel like anyone respected her wishes but she had an epidural and thankfully Izzaq was born without complication. He was perfectly healthy and able to come home with them three days later. She was induced with her second pregnancy and got an epidural again, but it didn't take and she was able to feel her entire delivery. She had hoped things would go differently for her third pregnancy and really wanted to go into labor on her own and do everything naturally. She had a midwife and a hospital that would allow her to have a waterbirth. Unfortunately, her husband lost his job and insurance and she had to be in and out of the hospital in 24 hours so she needed to be induced again. She is really hoping that with her fourth pregnancy, she can have the delivery she's already dreamed.
