Get a group of moms together and, sooner or later, birth stories will come up. The stories are as unique as the mothers, so when I get a chance to talk to a scared first-time pregnant mom, I say, Your birth story will be your story. It's going to be hard, but it's going to be beautiful. And the baby will be worth it.
I have four birth stories, but I don't usually tell one of them because it can still make me weepy. Today, I told my hardest story at the ABC News/ UN Foundation Million Moms Challenge.
My story has a happy ending…
…but across the globe, there are mothers and babies who do not have happy endings simply because they don't live in developed countries. Please go to my post to leave a comment and sign up for the Million Moms challenge.
