*content warning: pregnancy loss, D&C, stillbirth*
Nuola shares her first experiences with pregnancy and birth. She first became pregnant as a college student. Her doctor ultimately convinced her to terminate a potentially difficult but wanted pregnancy. After experiencing a coerced D&C and later a stillbirth, Nuola went on to have two health children born in the hospital--first with an OB then a nurse midwife. When Nuola got pregnant again, she opted for a home birth and tells us why.
