The amazing Megan Romer and 9 month old Natalie. Megan's mother passed away 2 years before Natalie was born and not having her advice and experience to fall back on, she used her friends experience and her research to determine the birth experience she wanted. She had a very healthy pregnancy and decided to go with hospital based midwives and a doula for a natural birth. She labored for over 24 hours in and out of water before deciding on an epidural so she could get some rest. She had a pitocin drip and labor stalled out a bit. She pushed for two hours before Natalie was born at an even 8 lbs.
