I’m not sure how it came up but a few of my friends and I were talking about something and one told us the story of how she was born and I thought it fitting to share with you all.
She writes,”I was born in the beautiful city of Khartoum, Sudan in Soba hospital at 4AM, upside down and with no electricity. There was only one doctor around and he was sleeping. They woke him a little while before it was time for my mother to push. He had to start the generator and others lit candles as there was no electricity.”
She’s almost 21 years old and born in 1994. I compared her birth to what I assume mine was like in Staten Island, New York. I had electricity and my mother received an epidural, but we both made it and so did our mothers. I was amazed by her story not in an, “Oh my goodness how did you make it” kind of way, but in a “the pure power of nature kind of way”.
