The wonderful Jessica Trudeau with her daughters Edyn (6) and Charlotte (20 months). Both of Jessica's pregnancies were very easy but her deliveries were not. With Edyn's pregnancy, she was induced because her doctor was going to be out of town. She had 8 hours of pitocin and requested and epidural. They checked it and she was 10cm so it was too late. She pushed for an hour and a half and says she felt like she was going to die and decided that she didn't want any more children ever again. Shortly after Edyn was born, Jessica's father passed away unexpectedly and she was diagnosed with Postpartum Depression (PPD). She sought treatment and began medication. After about 3 years, she changed her mind about having more children and tried again to conceive. Her first success ended in an unfortunate miscarriage. Soon after, Charlotte was conceived. After another easy pregnancy under midwifery care she thought her delivery was going to be very different. She had an epidural but wasn't feeling the urge to push so her epidural was cut in half. After pushing for 3 hours she wasn't progressing and had to have a cesarean birth. Thankfully her recovery was very easy and she was able to breastfeed for 15 months. She stayed on medication through Charlotte's pregnancy and did great managing her PPD the second time around. Charlotte is named after Jessica's father Charles who passed away before she was born.
