Alhamdulillah I've got my hands full with my three kids, so this may be the last birth story I'll have!
I was blessed that my first two labors were very quick, about three hours from active labor to delivery. Quick as they were, I still had plenty of time to panic! I could not remain calm.
For this (most likely) last labor and delivery, my goal was to be relaxed while in labor. I wanted to feel excited and happy, not panicked and anxious!
