Natasha's birth story: 'A difficult pregnancy'
A mom shares her journey of her difficult pregnancy and slow birth experiences.

My last born was a difficult pregnancy.

I was on Warfarin when I fell pregnant and had to take Clexane injections every day throughout my pregnancy. I started feeling the sensation to pee like in my previous labour experiences 3 weeks before my due date. Because of the previous times happening so quickly I thought I had better get to the hospital. Also with it being a high risk pregnancy rather safe then sorry.

So we went to the hospital where it was confirmed that I was in labour but only 1cm dilated. Then the labour stopped so they induced me. But the labour kept stopping.

My daughter was born 13 hours later naturally and weighed a healthy 2.7kg. She will be turning 4 in December.
