Congratulations!!! Happy labor day, friends. I hope you are snuggling your baby with joy thinking back to your strength and accomplishment as a birthing person that labored your baby.
Happy vaginal birth, happy cesarean birth, happy non-medicated birth, happy medicated birth. Only your baby knows how they need to be born. Congratulations for listening and trusting your body for your individual birth and your individual baby.
Birth is not a competition or a time for comparisons. Motherhood or parenthood is also not a place for comparisons. Continue to trust yourself as you navigate the journey of parenthood. (I am writing this to encourage myself too, cause it can be hard to trust yourself!)
When the days get long or tough or both, think back to your strength during labor. You did it! You can continue to do it, whatever "it" happens to be!!
