The beautiful Angie Vega and 18 month old Annabelle. Angie had planned a natural birth but ended up with interventions she'd never planned for. Her midwife prematurely stripped her membranes, she had to be induced and then labored for a very long time. Annabelle was born healthy, thankfully. Angie was determined to have a placental lobe that remained after birth and had to undergo a D&C meaning she had to be away from her newborn for 4 days. While it was not the birth or postpartum experience she had hoped for Angie has a wonderful breastfeeding relationship with her daughter and her birth experience has prompted her to pursue a future as a doula and midwife.
