Labor Day Blog Carnival at Birth Activist

As Labor Day approaches I always stop to remember my daughter’s labor day weekend birth. While she was born the day before Labor Day, I still associate Labor Day with the day(s) I labored and gave birth. I started labor on that Friday.  I remember distinctly finally admitting that I was in labor as I was getting a pedicure.  Despite it being my eighth baby, I was a bit frightened and excited.  Baby number seven had been a quick, three hour labor.  What would this labor hold?  While Baby Ocho didn’t come quickly, she came beautifully.  Share a birth story, a birth tip, or just reminisce about birth for this easy going blog carnival about labor day(s).

The rules are simple:

  • Write a post featuring your thoughts on giving birth, labor and the like
  • Send us a link to your post at by September 3
  • The blog carnival will run on September 6, 2010 (Labor Day)
  • We’ll send you a link to include in your post!

    This is a beautiful picture! I am giving a lecture to some resident doctors about natural/traditional birth and want to show them some picture examples, would you be willing to let me use your photo in my presentation?
