My First-Time Labor Story at PPUM – Jan 2021

When I was in high school, my Biology teacher showed a natural birth video in class. I got traumatized when I saw episiotomy being performed. For a long time since, I questioned if I would want to put myself through birth pain. More than a decade passed and I clearly decided to bite the bullet and make a baby.

That didn’t mean I was no longer fearful of birth pain. But there was no turning back when I got the big fat positive on the pregnancy test so I tried to prepare myself…by watching more birth videos. πŸ˜‚

Talking Life with Mei Sze Facebook Live: Cancer and Fertility

Over the weekend, I mustered a lot of courage to do a Facebook Live chat with Mei Sze about cancer and fertility. It’s a difficult topic to talk about in public because infertility insecurity has been my biggest issue since my cancer diagnosis four years ago. At that point in time, I didn’t know if I wanted to have my own children yet but very quickly after learned that it’s one experience I’d be most curious about if I end up kicking the bucket at 25 from cancer.
