Guest series: My positive birth story #5 – Sheila (@theirmullerlife Instamum)

This week, we meet Sheila, mother of two under two – a boy and a girl. Sheila’s story is short and sweet, a tale of love and support, and a little bit of faith. Sheila doesn’t currently have a blog, so I’m really glad Sheila decided to share her story in this series!

‘You got this’, my husband said to me. I smiled and we exchanged a soft kiss, but inside I was unsure, and I knew he was too.

We’d spent the last two hours or so in a hospital room waiting for our scheduled C-section. This was our second C-section, so everyone told us it would be a piece of cake. This isn’t a negative birth story, I promise. But, after the drama we experienced with our first one just seventeen months prior, we both were aware that anything could happen.

Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination. ~ William Longgood

Capricorns are big dreamers. I’ve always had big ideas about what I wanted to be when I grew up (or not be, as the case may be!). I’m lucky to have always had the support of my family and friends whenever I’ve wanted to achieve something. But it takes more than luck and support; it takes dedication, a lot of hard work, and the strength to stand up and try again if, at first, you fail. And that’s a lesson I want to teach my son.
