Heartwrenching Baby Stories

by Kate on September 13, 2020

When first started reading DesignMom’s series on birth stories, I honestly was a little disappointed. Selfishly, it interrupted my daily fix of DesignMom’s wit and wisdom. But I kept reading and find myself hooked. It’s sort of a tribute to the mom club - all of us moms have a birth story. All of them are important and life changing, no matter what happens.

Here is a story about Emma that didn’t so much have me in tears as have my unglued. Truthfully, I wanted to stop reading because there are some things I just don’t want to know because my imagination is fertile enough. I’m constantly thinking of the horrors that can befall my children. Not in a debilitating way, but in a “I do not want to have them or me experience pain” sort of way.

I don’t know if all moms feel this way, but I suppose they do.

Sometimes you need a good cry - I know I do. And, when my head feels fuzzy and I’m out of sorts and I know I need to cry but I can’t quite work myself up to it on my own, I watch sad movies or read sad stories.

The birth story about Emma is quite possibly the one story that will stick with me for years to come. I won’t try to summarize it here - just go and read it.
