Birth Stories: Deployment and a Facetime Birth

Birth Stories: Deployment and a Facetime Birth

To say that the birthing process was an amazing experience is something that I never thought I would say. To better understand, I should explain my first birth a bit. My daughter was born at a military clinic on a military base while living overseas. I did not have a specific doctor during my pregnancy because whoever was on call when I went into labor would be delivering my baby.  I received excellent care but it was not personable. Compounded with being a first time mom, the entire experience was less then desirable. I wasn’t sure that I would ever want to do it again.
