Thank you all SO much so far! Yes, this birth has been so healing! The days pass (three so far - in four minutes she will be three days old exactly) and I feel more and more exuberant each day. I am SO happy about this birth experience and the birth of her, so elated! This whole nine months and the birth and she, have all been this huge, enormous gift - I feel like the luckiest woman alive! I'm SO on a high! I also got some sleep as well, because we co-slept, so that was nice.
