The lovely Emily Mayo and her daughter Billy (10 weeks). Emily is also a bonus mum to her husband's daughter LJ (14). She is a feminist and an activist and is blown away by what women and mothers can do. She had a great pregnancy but was a bit over it at the end when Billy went overdue, and she was sore, simply ready for her to come earthside. Emily chose to deliver in a labor ward where she'd have access to drugs if she needed them. However, the day Billy decided to come, so did a lot of other babies! The labor ward was full, and Billy was coming quickly, so Emily was sent to the birthing center to deliver naturally. Billy was born about 4.5 hours later, an experience that Emily describes as tremendous, difficult and amazing. Emily had a small episiotomy and a bit of gas but was otherwise able to delivery naturally. Almost immediately, Billy found her way to the breast and started nursing and other than a couple of painful days, things are going very well. Emily wants to break down the barriers women feel and is happy and proud to feed Billy as publicly as possible. She is upset that structural inequality exists and affects women in the ways that it does. She is a firm believer that it takes strong women to stand up and change those things and was happy to participate to help be part of that.
