1. Women find their own unique coping mechanisms for the pain of labor.
2. Dads can be incredibly supportive and strong, even during the toughest moments.
3. An epidural at 8-9 cm can be a beautiful thing for a momma that knows she needs a rest, and then goes on to meet her baby about 20 minutes later.
4. Labor and delivery nurses are a special kind of people.
5. Induction doesn't have to mean Pitocin, or epidural, or C-section.
6. A successful VBAC is an extra special, wonderful thing.
7. It's possible to labor at work, at home, and while caring for your toddler, then roll in to the hospital at 8 cm like it's no big deal.
8. The doctor is really just catching your baby and witnessing your birth; they're not "delivering" your baby.
9. ... Unless you're lucky enough to get a wise, kind, thoughtful doctor who gently coaches you along as you're pushing and takes everything in stride. Wow.
10. There's nothing quite like seeing a woman hold her baby for the first time.
