Tuesday, April 21st, 2015, I hit 38 weeks pregnant! My husband was in the midst of finals for nursing school. I wasn’t feeling well that morning so I decided to nap while our 19 month old napped (and she took an unusually longer nap than normal, which was a huge blessing looking back!), while my husband was studying for his first final the next day. We got up from our nap at 1:40 p.m. and the sun was shining in the window and it was clear blue skies. I was so excited! After a couple weeks of dreary, rainy weather I was ready to get out and hike in the sunshine!
I was standing in the kitchen making a plan for the afternoon with my husband when a warm gush of fluid soaked my pants at 1:45 pm. I was in shock, and just stood there for a minute, questioned whether it really was my water breaking, looked at my husband and said, “I think my water just broke!” His response? “Oh, shoot!”
HI! My name is Angela Wilde and I am a mother of 4 children. I am 31 years old and I have been a client of Juneau Birth Center 3 times now. They have always been awesome. My birth experiences range from my first “medical” in hospital, to birth center .Initially I always felt that the standard of care, and the way that they nurture their clients, and the way that they promote wellness more in keeping with my values and standards than the doctor/hospital way.
We love to hear from our past clients! If you would like your birth story added to our website please email it to us at email@example.com
