Tia's birth story: 'The 15 minute C-section'

My birth story is rather short and boring.

At 42 weeks pregnant the doctor said baby is just too comfortable so he has to help him out. He wasn't lying right for me to be induced, and I hadn't dilated at all. No labour or Braxton Hicks pains. It was if my body didn't even know I was pregnant.

So the next day I had a C-section during the doctor's lunch time. I remember someone saying, "15min, that must be a record!"

My baby is now 3.5 years old. Breastfed and healthy.
