Recently I received this email from a Birthful podcast listener:
Just wanted to share my latest birth story with you. Still love the show, i even got my midwife loving it! Sorry for the typos. I did this on my phone with a wiggly toddler climbing on me and trying to breastfeed lol.
I ‘m honored that she chose to share this with me. With her permission, I’m equally honored to share it with all you. Here it is:
Lincoln Everett Shook’s Birth Story
Before the Birth
Baby was due on Sunday October 25th. On the Friday morning before we packed up and made the scenic trip through the Rocky Mountains on the Pine Pass. It was a beautiful day unseasonably warm, and sunny. The leaves had already fallen and the mountains where left grey and green looking rather naked, waiting for their annual blanket of snow to tuck them in for the winter.
