BlogHer Baby Week Bloggers

When Discovery Health asked us if we had any bloggers who would be interested in sharing their birth stories for Baby Week, we sat down with some pink and blue (chocolate) cigars and asked them how much time they had.

Do we have bloggers who would like to tell their birth stories? From our publishing network of more than 1400 mommy (and daddy) bloggers, we have an awful lot of birth stories to tell.

Below, you'll find more than 20 moms with birth stories to tell. They'll make you laugh and cry and thank your lucky stars that THAT did not happen to YOU.

After you've been inspired by their birth stories, you're invited to log into BlogHer.com and post your own. If you have already blogged your birth story, we'd love it if you'd leave a link in the comments so we can come read and celebrate right along with you.
