hey party people! it's been too long since i've shared a birth story for ya! and i have a beautiful one for you! settle in to hear about the birth story of sweet mila! Mila’s birth story For 2 weeks I was having contractions, painful and intense ones that were anywhere from 10-20 minutes apart on most days.
