The lovely Lidiya Yablonskaya with her sons Zhenya (11) and Misha (7). Lidiya is from Belarus and gave birth to both of her boys there. She had healthy pregnancies each time and incredibly fast deliveries, each lasting under 2 hours. She chose to deliver in hospital with Zhenya and says that the doctors don't really allow you to have a choice in anything they just do things. She was given pitocin and an episiotomy and though she was able to deliver vaginally, found it to be a horrible experience. She had a midwife assisted homebirth with Misha and he was born in her bathtub without complication. Lidiya was able to successfully breastfeed both boys without issue, Zhenya for 3 years and 3 months, Misha for 4 years and 4 months. She's never been entirely comfortable with her body and really wants embrace herself and set a good example for her boys.
