What I Wish I Had Known
I wish I had known that no matter how prepared you are, life will throw totally unexpected curve balls at you in the process of becoming a parent. Despite a decade of attending births and working with childbearing families, nothing could have prepared me for the experience of my Achilles’ tendon being severed at 36 weeks pregnant in a freak accident involving a broken glass at our baby shower, sending me into labor a month early while on crutches with my leg in a cast, requiring surgery to reattach the tendon when my baby was two weeks old, followed by months of physical therapy, and finally being able to walk and carry my baby for the first time when she was 5 months old! You just never know what kind of hand you will be dealt in the transition to parenthood, but you will learn how strong you actually are in the process!
