I wouldn’t say I have high pain tolerance. In fact, I kinda shy away from anything that might cause pain or imminent death – like really tall buildings. In the past, there wasn’t much I could say about each of my deliveries except that they hurt a whole lot – and boy was I glad when it was over!
And while you have those tiny toes to distract you soon afterward, there’s always the after pains to bring you out of your baby-kissed delirium and back to the present.
A series of life-changing events over several years – a stillborn baby, Lymes disease, food allergies, and candida – lead our family to learn about alternative medicine, whole foods, and herbs. I didn’t realize the impact that would have on the ‘pregnant me’ until I was expecting our sixth baby.
