We came across Piper’s birth story in the blog Love Lola! This lifestyle blog, written by registered dietitian and mom Lauren Foster, covers food, fashion, and motherhood.  

Lauren chronicles her entire pregnancy in photos and posts, and she also shares the birth story of of her first child, Piper. Lauren very much wanted to have a natural childbirth, with no medication or interventions of any kind (if it could possibly be helped).

Tiny spoiler alert… even though she was vomiting throughout labor and questioned her own non-epidural rule several times, Lauren makes it through delivery with the help of a birthing tub (and without any pain medication!).
