Birth during a global pandemic

Birth during a global pandemic.

A submarine deployed partner.
A birth center dream turned to in hospital induction due to stroke level blood pressures.
A planned natural birth turned to a difficult and painful induction without an epidural.
Hopes for delayed cord clamping, skin to skin, and exclusively breastfeeding turned to a quick exit to the NICU.

One of the absolute strongest people I have ever met in my entire life.
