BIRTH VLOG: Baby Delivery After Spinal Cord Injury

Hello World,

Hi world. Today's post is a very emotional one for me. I want to share with you all our very emotional, raw Birth Vlog.




I am excited to share this with you all... firstly because we are so blessed with the successful and joyous birth of our daughter, and secondly because I personally wanted to share this experience with "somebody" out there. 

As most of you know, I had a car accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury. 
When I was pregnant and started to prepare for the birth of our daughter, I searched through the internet for videos of somebody I could fully relate to who posted their birth vlog and found NONE.  

While there were many birth Vlogs I enjoyed watching all over the place, I found pretty quickly that I couldn't relate to most of the moms or their experiences. As I've shared with you guys during my pregnancy journey, my doctor is AMAZING and she gave me the peace of mind I needed throughout my pregnancy journey. Her wealth of knowledge coupled with my husbands support, our combined faith and God's grace made pregnancy and childbirth a wonderful experience for me despite my diagnosis of spinal cord injury. 

I am truly glad we were able to document this experience.
I hope this video gives somebody out there HOPE, and strengthens your faith that with God, all things are possible.

Enjoy Watching below.

I will be sharing more detailed information about my pregnancy, delivery and all things baby on there. 
Take care, 
God Bless.
