The beautiful Casey O'Brien with 11 week old Ezra Nathaniel. Casey is also step-mom to a 9 year old boy. She tried for about 10 years to get pregnant and had a loss along the way before conceiving Ezra. Once she was pregnant she loved everything about it but was surprised by the comments others felt comfortable making about her body and pregnancy. Casey had a birth plan and chose to deliver at a birthing center. She went into labor at 38 weeks and labored for 49 hours surrounded by women and her husband feeling empowered by her body and the experience. Ezra was experiencing some distress so her team suggested pitocin and an epidural in order to get him to come sooner. Casey thought about it and asked them to give her more time to do it on her own, only to find that they had already started the pitocin. Soon after a man, the anesthesiologist, came in and started giving Casey orders so that he could administer the epidural. He made her husband leave and offended her by commenting on her body and her reaction to what he was doing. Casey was upset and says she kept saying: "This wasn't in my plan!". Ezra came within an hour of the Pitocin and epidural but aspirated his meconium and had to be rushed to NICU, where he spent the next 5 days. While Casey tried accepting her new body, she says that the comments from others continued postpartum. Her lactation consultant turned it all around for her; while trying to work on her son's latch, he was using her belly to boost himself to her breast. Her LC told her to not try to hard to loose it as her son needed it to help himself feed.
