The beautiful Stephanie Browne with her children Kenadi (15), Madison (12), Andrew (8) and Cameron (3 - pictured in photograph but not present due to illness). Stephanie has had four enjoyable pregnancies that she loved. Feeling the movements and getting to know the babies inside her was a wonderful thing. She says the biggest barrier in the birthing process for her, aside from her children's size was education and support. All were born in hospital, the first with an OB, the rest with midwives but it wasn't until she'd switched facilities and providers with her last baby that she truly felt supported. All of Stephanie's children were very large, Kenadi was the smallest at 9.5lbs and Madison was the largest at 11lbs 3oz . All were born vaginally but she had a lot of trouble pushing them out and two became stuck having to be vaccuum extracted and pulled out. She even had to sign a waiver for Andrew's delivery saying she was refusing a cesarean after they suggested she have one simply because her previous baby was large and got stuck temporarily. For Cameron's delivery, she finally found a midwife who respected her body and allowed her to rest before pushing. Stephanie loved breastfeeding and was able to successfully nurse all of her children but she found it incredibly painful at first. Each time, it hurt so bad that she had to be alone to feed her children so others didn't see her cry. She says the pain lasted for about 4-8 weeks and then it was almost as if someone had flipped a switch and it became second nature and she was able to nurse all of her children for 2-3 years. She says that breastfeeding her babies has changed her entire relationship with and opinions about food. Growing up she was always told what to do and how to act and never learned to trust herself but she's slowly learned to do that throughout her motherhood journey. She wants her children to not only be confident in their bodies but ultimately, in their whole selves.
