Birth

“Push!”

Screams.

“Don’t scream! Screaming isn’t pushing!”

Truest words I have ever heard.

“Push!” … “Breathe, dearest, breathe.”

A different scream. That of a child. My heart fills with joy, a lead-in ed joy that sat outstretched throughout my body. They had my son, our son. A start of a life and a new chapter in ours. I kiss her on the forehead as they clean our boy up, my eyes fixated on her exhausted form.

“I love you, dearest.”

One thought on “Birth

  1. As someone who has given birth those first lines are so true.
    Though I hated when people told me to push or breath. They where way to happy sounding while I was screaming in pain. 28 hours of labor and 35 minutes of pushing. Nurses where so sugary sweet I could have frosted a cake with their words.
