Megan describes delivering the placenta, the ‘golden hour,’ newborn exam and taking home their brand new human! She talks about her and her partner’s first decisions as new parents and what it felt like to hold their little one for the first time.

If you are squeamish and don’t want to hear Megan talk about tearing, this is the timeframe to skip: 31:14-33:35.
It’s not bad. It’s really not. And it’s actually a good part of the story to exemplify the amazing care Megan received by her midwife. But in case you are sensitive to it, we wanted to give you the information in order to skip it.
If you are reaaaally sensitive and don’t want to hear any of it, skip the next part also, which is about the first pee and tune back in at 35:19.
