The radiant Kate Reeve and her son William (14 months). Kate had a healthy pregnancy and initially planned to give birth at a birthing center. However, she decided she didn't like all of their restrictions so midway through her pregnancy, she was able to hire an independent midwife and gave birth at home. She said the experience was beautiful and empowering and made her want to give birth 100 times over. She was able to initiate breastfeeding with no hiccups other than pain the first couple of months. She's dealt with biting spells along the way as well but is determined to continue breastfeeding William until he's ready to wean.
