I was happy to see the comment left by Trisha on the post— or more accurately, on the kind comments on the post— about her January 21, 2009 birth to her youngest child. Note that she points out an inaccuracy in the original article, which reported that she pushed for thirty minutes. She actually pushed for three minutes.
Hi guys! I just wanted to say how much I appreciate such a positive website with positive and kind responses. Curiosity made me google our newspaper article and you wouldn’t believe what I have read! One newspaper comment page compared my baby to a turkey and then painted the lovely picture of giving birth to a turkey. I would like to respond to a few things you guys said. In my experiences of child birth, my first was the hardest. I was in labor for 18 hours. I also needed alot of stitches and was anemic after she was born. It took me 12 mins to push her out. She was 10llbs 15 1/2 ozs. My second daughter was 8 1/2 lbs and I pushed her out in like a min. My third daughter, Alayna (she she was the 12lb 9oz baby) didn’t hurt any more than the others. The newspaper article made a mistake. I pushed her out in 3 mins not 30. I think that maybe since I didn’t have and epidural (scared of them) helped me to deliver so fast. Thanks again for being so nice. The world needs more people like you guys!
Thank you, readers!
