There are approximately one infinity different experiences that accompany the miracle of giving birth, unique to every parent.

Whatever you remember, assuming you haven't completely blocked it out of your memory, you probably have a story to tell about the time a person came out of your body.

We are working on a special project, and we want to hear about it (and if you had a home birth, we have a few additional questions we want to ask, too).
