Birth Stories

I have been fortunate enough to give birth to four beautiful daughters, Lakin, Addah, Clara, and Katie. These are their birth stories – from failure to progress, a premature birth and NICU stay, to a planned vba2c (vaginal birth after two c-sections) that ended in a post-dates stillbirth, and finally, a planned c-section.

If you are currently pregnant or trying to conceive, or if you know someone who is, please direct them to The Vantage Point of Hindsight. In this post, I look back at my last birth and the tragic loss of Clara, and hope that my hindsight can help other mothers to make better choices and not suffer the same tragedy.

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!
