Birth story haikus
I am limited to one-hand typing while holding the new baby, so how about if you all do all the work for this post? How about this: Let’s do birth story haikus!
I love hearing birth stories, but they’re always so long — I don’t think I’ve ever been able to capture one of mine in less than 2,000 words. I thought it might be fun to put them in haiku form (if you need a refresher, it’s a 5-7-5 syllable scheme). Here are two of mine:
this is gonna be great, right?
Doctor Bradley lies.
You have failed me once again.
Uh-oh, time to push.
What’s your birth story haiku? Feel free to do it for one, some or all of your births. Thanks in advance for my amusement for the afternoon.
