I am interested in asking my Grandma (midwife), details about her births.
She only gave birth twice but I would love to hear all about her experience as a Mother/midwife who gave birth in the 60's.
Just something that really interests me.
I know that she delivered my Dad naturally and he was 12lbs+
Then she delivered my Aunt a few years later and she was about the same.
My Dad is a GIANT.
And my Aunt was too.
I just think it's amazing.
Now days you hear women coming on these parenting sites discussing their fears of giving birth naturally because they are worried of ripping after attempting to deliver a huge baby.
You hear them say that the obstetricians or midwives have estimated how big the baby will be but are they always right?
I just have so many questions I can't wait to ask my Grandma.
If women from her childbirthing era can birth big babies why can't they now days?
I don't think we should be scared and I don't think our vaginas are incapable of delivering a big baby.
Anyone have any naturally birthing big baby stories to share?
