"I was in labor for three days (Thursday around noon until Sunday around noon) from the time I started having regular contractions about half an hour apart to the time our son was born. My contractions were 10-15 minutes apart for all but the first few hours. I had back labor. "

Trisha Lawrie has kindly shared three incredibly powerful poems regarding birth and I am thrilled to share them. I feel they speak to so much that we speak of on EP and give voice to experiences that, sadly, far too many women experience during the birth process. Though "enjoy" isn't quite the right word, I hope you find these as moving and powerful as I have. Today I share the first of the three entitled Birth Day, a reflection on Ms. Lawrie's personal experience.
