    FYI Re Dilation

    Ai li, lesliefu and recurring like this.
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    It still seems amazing to me that a whole baby comes out of a bagel sized opening.

    It's definitely a miracle. I had a hard time visualizing it before but this time when I gave birth, when my daughter crowned I was actually standing up and just reached down and was like, "Oh, there's a head!" It didn't seem all that impossible from that point on and those little babies are just so slippery when they come out that once the head is out everything is so quick! Seeing that bagel makes me hungry! Ha ha ha!
