I giggled so loudly that i woke my daughter up (who, by the way, fell asleep watching "the Last Unicorn")

Great story! This is one that i'll be sharing with my fiance' to further convince him of a water homebirth! *waves at honey--thanks for reading it*

Congratulations! Hands-down one of the most entertaining birth stories I've ever read- I could totally picture everyone...
And doulas like yours give doulas a bad name!

You are awesome!

Sounds like a wonderful birth, and your story was hilarious. I guess that should come as no surprise, given that you've chosen to quote David Sedaris in your siggy .

Mama to M (7/05) and S (5/08) my surprise !!!
