and another baby! happy homebirth

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

our little boy, Oliver Lee, was born in water at home yesterday, june 3 at 5:08pm after 18 hours of labor and 8 min of pushing (i'm pretty proud of that last part) he weighs 7lb 4oz and is, as far as all can tell, utterly perfect. DH was amazing, the midwives were fantastic, the birth tub was heavenly. we are all well, resting, and bonding.
but i will say natural birth is not for the faint of heart! dang. i'm looking forward to being able to pee without cursing.L1020053.jpg
