Thanks so much for including your birth story. People need to hear about birth the way God designed it to be!! My husband and I actually visited the No Greater Joy offices the first weekend in August, but missed you because you were oh so with baby : )

So we were eager to hear the news. Bradley Childbirth is fantastic- I'm a doula and I've heard many "natural childbirth" perspectives, but I love how the Bradley method really encourages women to focus in on what their body is doing- and to give in to this process.

I liken it to trusting God- even when there is much pain/pressure!

So, we're sorry we missed meeting you but rejoice over Penelope Jane's birth!

Blessings, The Montmenys
