Thank you for sharing it. So beautiful. I'm going to share it with my 2.5 yr old DD when she wakes up. She can't wait for me to have my baby!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

That was such a great birth story! Thank you so much for sharing. I especially loved the picture of you holding your new little babe with a huge smile on your face, it made my eyes fill with tears. Your pictures really make me look forward to my first homebirth coming in May/June.

Sharing this beautiful birth to all, surely makes you a very special kind of mom!!!! My twelve year old granddaughter watched with me, and was in awe. Then when we were reading the posts, she was wondering why people cried, I couldn't answer because of the emotions surging through my body. Thanks for sharing. Years ago when my older children were born, there was nothing to prepare for birth, at least not in our part of the country; young parents are given a gift of love when they view your birth!!!!!!!! Congratulations.

What a beautiful birth. That's how they all should be.

BTW.. I see you are moving up into my area... I'm trying to get a group of MDCers to hang out.. let me know when you are in the area.
