How a Normal Delivery Became Possible Inspite of a Complicated Pregnancy

My pregnancy journey was a dream come true. My husband and I, both were excited about our baby. We used to regularly visit our doctor, and hear our baby’s heartbeat during the checkups. In the 7th month, my doctor told me that the head of my baby had got fixed and he could become ready to come out soon, at this time his lungs were not fully developed. It was a complicated situation as I had a low lying placenta also.I had to go on bed rest with a little bit of walk. We were very worried. My husband used to do all my work. He continuously motivated me and stayed in touch with my doctor. One thing that I could do for my baby was breathing exercises and yoga. And it helped me a lot during the delivery.Thanks to God, I completed 9 months of pregnancy. In my final ultrasound, I got to know that there was a loop around the neck of my baby. We became even more worried.Three days prior to my due date, I noticed some blood stains on my pant and we rushed to our doctor. She told us that I needed to get admitted. I asked why as there was no pain. Doc said that pain would start within the next 4 to 5 hours.We went back home, took our delivery kit in which we had kept all the essential goods for our baby and me. Doctor said that she would see if a  normal delivery was still possible.After 8 hours of pain I was almost exhausted,  but due to the encouragement by my doctor and nurses I was able to deliver my son Yatharth on 23rd August 2018 through NVD. One thing that I have learnt is that a mother’s love for her baby and her husband’s support gives her strength.
