Dh and I found the same thing with our midwives and our theory is that it's the oxytocin. You just get flooded with love for everyone in the room, not just the baby...provided you were happy with your care of course.
So exciting! That's not what I was expecting from this thread. Can't wait to see a photo of your sweet Gideon. I'm sorry that labor was rough and I look forward to hearing everything you need to share!
