  1. Heather B.: Not all birth stories are the same. 🙂 This is the first time we met our son. He was 3 months old when we brought him home, and 9 months old when the adoption was complete.

  1. Erika J.: After going to the doctor that day and having my membranes swept, it threw me into instant labor. Checked in the hospital at 5:15-5:30ish and my little guy was here at 7:58 on 3/11/16. It was so fast, epidural almost didn't take😳. A far cry from my previous labor of 12 hours. Now I have 2 beautiful little boys!!

  1. Mayra M.: My little mama was born March 9, 2016. The pain was worth it, 18 hours in labor. She's my first baby. Daddy and I love you!

  1. Hermalinda M.: Had emergency c-section. Met him when he was 8 hours old. This was the very first time I got to touch him. Then it took 3 days for me to hold him again.

  1. Heather O.: Meeting Lily May. My first baby born after three miscarriages. She truly was a miracle and this moment was everything I had hoped and dreamed it would be and SO much more. I've never cried so hard and been so happy. I've never been so in love.

  1. Letticia Rose V.: After hours (days?) of labor and scary moments: “Hi, Baby!!” Eliana Lucille born 08/20/2015, 7 lbs, 3 oz, at 1:53 am. Our little sugar baby!

  1. Kristen W.: Baby number 4. Got to the hospital about ready to push her out. Was able to hold her skin-to-skin for the next hour and bond more than with my others. I love the progress that has been made at some hospitals!

  1. Allison R.: Evelynn Grace, our first family photo after 18 hours of labor and an emergency c-section. I was very ready to meet my baby girl!

  1. Kelsey D.: Not really a pic of me, but I had my 3rd baby in my car! My hubby held our little man while I talked to 911. I had the shakes too bad to hold him, but I was able to get a picture of my husband and son.

  1. Shellie M.: I cut his cord, they put him on me, and he snuggled/squiggled to my neck. I love my baby boy!  Love my 5 lb-er! <3
