ABSTRACT

Long before I got pregnant, my husband and I began to prepare for the kind of birth I had always imagined for myself: peaceful, normal, and without medication or unnecessary medical intervention. In the fall of 2008, I got pregnant. At that same time, I started a new career as a labor and delivery nurse in a hospital that specializes in high-risk labor and birth. My daughter’s journey into this world turned out to be the beautiful normal experience we had always imagined. This special experience also helped shape the kind of care I offer as a new labor and delivery nurse.

Keywords: labor and delivery nursing; natural birth; normal birth
