Our Birth Story

At the very end of 2019, Justin and I welcomed our son, Wynn, into the world. On the evening of December 19 we went into the hospital to begin the induction process. It was an evening of very little sleep and quite a few checkups from our nurse. I was only dilated to a one when we checked in to the hospital. After three doses of medicine by Friday morning, labor wasn’t progressing the way Dr. Alumbaugh (my cousin, Ashley – and she is amazing!) was hoping. On Friday morning I was still only one centimeter dilated.

We discussed the possibility of a c-section that morning, but we wanted to wait and see what happened. The medication I had been given to get things going was causing a near constant contraction that was incredibly uncomfortable. I was given some medicine to fix that, but was still very much so in pain. Around 11 we decided to go ahead with an epidural, which helped me to immediately relax. I was able to get some sleep and we progressed a couple more centimeters before stalling again.

At that point, the doctor and nurses were not a fan of the way Wynn’s heart rate was dropping after each of my contractions. It was decided that a c-section was going to be the best/safest course of action around 2:30, and by 3:30 p.m. we were on our way to the operating room. We had an incredible medical team to bring Wynn into the world, and at 3:49 p.m. on December 20 he was here!
