The telling of one's birth story is an important part of the birth process, especially for women whose births don't go as planned. And, I am pretty sure that for the majority of women that there is some aspect of their birth that didn't go exactly the way they wanted. The telling of the story, then, is part of the healing process. Yesterday, in an effort to entertain Bea for a few minutes, I told her the story of her birth, not the one I had told other people, but the one I wanted her to hear. It turns out it was the one I needed to hear too.
