Breech: a presentation of an unborn baby that isn’t head-down
Breach: to break into something
Breaking into parenthood can feel much like my daughter did in my womb: upside down! Thankfully, there are many resources out there to help those of us who are breaking into this new world of parenthood—including this blog!
Hey there! Thanks for joining me. I’m Kaitlyn, wife of John, Mommy of Lydia. A stay at home mom and part-time freelance writer, I raise our daughter and write on a variety of topics.
My little breech was born in February of 2019. After 38 weeks and 3 days of pregnancy, 10 hours of labor while waiting for a C-section, 4 days in the NICU, several weeks of postpartum depression, and over a year of this new thing called motherhood, I know a thing or two more than I did back when we were a family of two.
When I was pregnant and preparing for a baby, I got my hands on as much information as I could. I cross-referenced blogs and vlogs and other resources to make sure I got the gist and didn’t miss anything (of course I missed many things; that’s life and parenthood)! Now as a mom, when problems or questions arise, I gather as much information as I can to help us make informed decisions.
It’s my hope to contribute to the collective body of information on parenthood as well as fill in some of the gaps.
Here at Breeching Baby, you’ll see new articles appear every week or two about first-time parenting, pregnancy, and more. Subscribe to be sure you don’t miss anything!
A quick note: some posts will be tagged with “Christian Corner.” These are the only posts on the site that contain outright faith-based content, unless it directly pertains to my personal life, like in “My Birth Story” or “My NICU Experience.” If this isn’t your thing, feel free to skip over these posts; I won’t be offended, I promise!
I hope my experiences and perspective can help make a difference for other first-time moms out there! If even one piece of my work helps you, I’ve done my job.
Thanks for checking out Breeching Baby!
