Tomorrow will mark one week since we met our new baby girl, Vera. The surprise of a lifetime. My husband saying, "It's a girl!... It's a girl, Erica!", replays in my mind every time I stare at her darling face.
I am in a state of awe as I think back through my pregnancy and birth, the most magical and wild ride of my life, and I have an immense amount of gratitude for the team I had surrounding me. The personal care and attention I received from Meghan and Adrienne at Modern Midwifery was unmatched, as they supported us down the path to parenthood and guided us through every twist and turn.
You dream of having a healthy and happy baby at the end of this path, but I hoped the journey through pregnancy and birth would be just as sweet and that is exactly what we received with Meghan by our side. Dreams do come true. Welcome to the world, Vera Corrine!
