I CAN DO THIS

The moment I saw the positive result on a pregnancy test strip, my heart skipped a million beats. The moment we had been waiting for, for quite some time, had actually happened. At that very moment, I couldn’t think of anything else besides “Holy crap, I’m going to be a mom!”. Completely elated with joy and disbelief, I took about 12 more pregnancy tests, that week, just to make sure. I wasn’t a girl who dreamt of having babies. Not that I didn’t want them, I just didn’t even think about it. I thought it might happen one day, and when it does, I’ll figure it out then. I mean, so many people have done it before me and my friends have done it, so clearly I can do it. Then after a while, reality set in, “I’m growing a baby and somehow that baby has to come out of my body!” Truthfully that scared me.

The courage it takes to make choices for your pregnancy story or for your baby is very intimidating, and it is so amazing to have a tribe surround you, back you up and lift you up when you feel confused or vulnerable.
 
PWC and all the doctors guided me when I needed help, always making my family and I feel valued and loved!
 
I want every woman to feel valued and guided in her choices when it comes to welcoming a new life into this world. During every visit to PWC, I want each family to be able to create their OWN story, not have to just follow somebody else’s! Knowing what I gained during my pregnancy and birth...
