Privacy Please!

Growing up, my mom had a pretty standard routine after she got home from work. She would greet us if she didn’t pick us up from school and then go to the bathroom and stay there for what seemed like forever. We were not allowed to bother her at all unless it was an emergency. […]

My VBAC Birth Story
