The Father - Benji



Finally three and a half months later I got to record my birth story.
I wanted to do this in the first 6 weeks, but the Universe had other plans.
This is a three-part story - you are going to hear this story from my perspective, as well as my husband Benji and my doula Danae's point of view of what went down on June 15th.
I asked my friend Alison to interview us - I am so grateful for her, she has a beautiful mind and asked such beautiful questions.
Today you'll hear the story of Ever's arrival from her father's perspective and I am hearing this for the first time, along with all of you.
You can find out more information and contacts details for Danae on her website
Content warning: This episode covers a graphic description of childbirth and may contain some explicit language.
Enjoy the story of the arrival of our Ever.
