Thread Starter 
Just wanted to let you know that Jackson was born at 8:13 am today after 5 hrs and 45minutes of labor, 1 h 1nd 10 of it pushing. He is my fourth child, my biggest baby, and was my hardest delivery. I didnt tear badly, the same 2 stitches worth I always need, and I have a first degree scratch from where my midwife had to dislodge his shoulders while I pushed his body out. I will ahve some pictures up after I get some rest today.

Thomas Jackson Gage H******
10 lbs, 22 inches long
14 1/2 cm head circumference
15 cm chest circumference

Born at home in a birthing pool with midwife, doula, 2 big sisters, grandma, and dad in attendance!

I gotta say...this girl rocked the birth scene in a big way! It may have been her hardest labor yet but she did what needed to be done and pushed a big, beautiful boy into the world!
