After being induced at almost 42 weeks with her first son, Felicia was really hoping to go into labor naturally this time around. She chose a midwifery practice instead of an OB in order to be more aligned with her birth plan. After 2 days of inconsistent contractions, she got her wish when her water broke on the bedroom floor on a Monday morning. Felicia shared her first birth in 2019 which can be accessed via our archives.
