Abstract:

A young mother shares the stories of her two sons' births. Her first birth experience was complicated by muscle spasms and changes in her baby's heart rate during labor and, later, by medical problems with her baby in the days after birth. The mother's strength and commitment shine through at every twist and turn during labor and the days after her son's birth. Two years later, in contrast to her first son's birth, the mother's second son was born so quickly that labor presented a different set of challenges. The mother's confidence in birth and in herself are essential facets of the stories of the births of her two sons.
