This woman’s story could be told by tens of thousands of American women, but it is her story, her triumph as an individual woman that will inspire others. Like this warrior mama, too many women are coerced or led into cesareans for “failed inductions” and/or babies that “cannot fit” through their pelvises. Many of these women go on to birth even larger babies at home the next time around. Our stories give rise to our own courage and power as women and mothers, and they can also transform the lives of women listening, who may have gone through a similar journey.
