My Personal Hero is Named Alexandra Orchard

Share on Facebook

Cesarean vs. VBAC: A Dramatic Difference from Alexandra Orchard on Vimeo.

Dear Alex,

I watched the movie, Cesarean vs. VBAC: A Dramatic Difference, that you created to share your birth experiences after finding it posted on one of my favorite blogs, Keyboard Revolutionary.  Thank you for being generous and fearless in sharing these personal moments of your life. The images, commentary and letter to your doctor in this sixteen minute video are so powerful and there is no way that words could have conveyed what you shared with all of us.

Congratulations. Your site, EmpoweredMomma.net, is wonderful.

Oh my gosh. That HBA2C sent tears streaming down my face... "I'm holding my baby!!" Wow. Thank you so much for sharing this, Jill and Alexandra!

Beauty. I didn't watch the video though, I just went straight to her blog. I shared the HBA2C photos with my husband and cried for a second time for their joy.

Jill, your words mean so much to me. I felt a strong need to tell my story, and I think it is part of my healing process. After this video went public, so many people have written to me expressing similar stories of limited choice and manipulation, and I ache to be with each and every one of them. I want to do everything I can to help them heal from their births and know that they ARE whole and they ARE powerful and they CAN birth their babies. I know I want to be part of the change, but I didn't expect that this video would speak to so many people! Thank YOU, too, for all that you are doing to be part of the difference. :) Alex.
