I am Karen, Kai’s mother … Having lived the beautiful experience of being a mother has been the most magical thing in my life, I had the opportunity to receive it in the best possible way.
I started with contractions in the early morning and by 8 in the morning I was already 6 cm dilated … I was very excited and happy to know that I would get to know him very soon. I decided to have him at home, at 9 am the Salud Primal team, Mailen my Doula and Dr. Estefanía arrived. Having Mailen close was essential for me because she helped me a lot to pass the contractions in the best way. They both guided me and were great teachers for me.
Water was my first choice and that’s how I visualized it. They filled the pool and I got into the water … the pain passed much calmer there. I followed my instincts and got carried away by my mind and body and by 12pm Kai was here. Receiving it with my hands was something so magical and unforgettable. He was born strong and healthy and I feel like the luckiest woman to have him in my life!
I would 100% do it this way again! Humanized childbirth is undoubtedly the way to bring our children into the world! I wish you the best, I hope you can experience it and know what I am talking about!
