Sophia's Homebirth:The Day I Met My Grandmother

The connection between mother and daughter cannot be described in words, you can try, but only nature knows the secret of this beautiful connection. July 17th, would be the day that would connect me, my daughter and granddaughter forever. We would be guided by instincts and love.

My daughter Jody was 11 days overdue, according to the calendar, but nature and God had a plan. Thursday, July 17th, Jody had an appointment with Claudia to start encouraging this child, already with a mind of it's own, to come out and play. At this visit, Jody received reassurance, comfort, cervical massage, blue and black cohosh and was instructed to start nipple manipulation. Jody returned home, with a new hope that this child would finally come out!!
