Congratulations to Julie and Justin on the birth of their amazing daughter Teagan. Their connection and intimacy through labor truly shone through. Through their labor, I kept thinking in my head, 'this is how it should always go...' Amazing family. Indeed.
Here is what Julie has to say about her experience with chiropractic, using a doula, and natural childbirth:
"Our beautiful daughter Teagan was born wednesday at kaiser wc, with my husband on one side of me, and Kenda on the other. Choosing to have a doula at my birth, and choosing Kenda as my doula, were two of the most important and best decisions I made about my pregnancy and delivery. I am convinced that my deep trust in Kenda's knowledge and abilities was a central factor in what was a fast, natural childbirth. As soon as I began working with Kenda, I knew I would be totally supported and taken care of through my pregnancy and delivery, and that's exactly what happened. I will always be grateful to Kenda for bringing her warmth, strength, and knowledge to my pregnancy and our daughter's birth." -Julie, mom to Teagan, born 2/10/2010, weighing 7 pounds, 7 ounces, 7 hour labor!
