Vanessa Romann with 15 month old, Reed. Vanessa had a very healthy and active pregnancy. She tried to deliver as naturally as possible. She wanted to deliver at a birthing center but went 8 days post and qualified out of the birthing center. She stayed home as long as possible and went to the hospital at about 8 cms dilated. Once at the hospital, she had meconium so she had to be monitored but was ableto labor and delivery naturally and with a lot of support from her husband and family.
