Caroline Maeve was born yesterday, December 8th at
5:43pm and was 7lbs 9 oz and 20 in. long. We almost didn't make it
to the hospital, she was born less than 10 minutes after we got
there. We are home and doing well..looks like she'll be another
marathon nurser like her big brother!
I will post our birth story as soon as I get a chance...just think-
waters breaking in the car, 6 nurses getting me out of the car and
ripping my clothes off on the gurney while people looked on!
Caroline went from being mildly interested in being born, to not
being able to wait!
... is on our family website, here: http://wisemanfamily.us
Easier than typing it all out & pictures are included!
Born at home, unassisted... by a minute! The midwife arrived just after he was born
Cecilia Abigail was born at home on Dec 8, 2003 at 5:33 p.m.

born at home to the excitement of his two older sisters
I know this is bit late but my dear son was born at home with my dh and marvellous midwife there on the 29 November 2003 His name is Noah.
Congrats to all the mamas and their babies on this thread!
I know its a little late in coming but Bryce was born January 29 at 8:25am. He was a planned c/b. I planned it at 39 weeks so he was born just shy of 40 weeks. He was 8lbs 7.6oz and 20" His apgars were 9 and 9.
The delivery went great but he was in special care for 30 hours (after latching on and nursing for 35 minutes an hour after after birth...the little pig
) for poor O2 sat levels. But he is great now!!
Yekaterina (Katya) Betty was Born April 13, 2003.
6lbs, 12 oz 20 inches
Will amend with a pic link soon.
Declan James was born on March 31st at 10:57AM. He was born at home in water - 10lbs. 14oz - 23 &3/4 long.
Can I brag? 7mins of pushing no tearing!
Not all was ideal - 2 full days of sputtering labor - so no sleep, then 13 hours of active labor, but only one hour of transition.
Andrea was born at home on Wednesday June 2 at 1:40 p.m. 8 lbs, 9 oz, 21 inches long, 14.5 inch head and 15 inch shoulders. The whole thing took 14 hours, with 5 hours of pushing.
YOWZA! 5 hours of pushing!
Congratulations and glad to hear she is finally here.
We had a baby girl on Sunday, July 11th. She still doesn't have a name, I'm waiting for dh to decide to help with that.
Anyway, labor was fast and furious, less than 4 hours from start to finish, 10 minutes of pushing. No tears or even skid marks to speak of. She was born at home, in our bathtub because there wasn't time to fill the birth tub. The midwives barely made it on time.
She weighed 8 lbs even. She has a lot of hair, and fuzzy ears, shoulders, and back. Her ears are pointed so she looks like a little forest creature, very cute.Baby pictures
I was blessed to attend the birth of Eleanor Paige, beautiful daughter of Indiegirl, born this morning at 1:28 am.
Jesse was such a superstar. She was inspiring. Her homebirth was attended by her dh, me, the greatest midwife ever and two awesome apprentices.
She will give more details as soon as she is up, I am sure.
Love to all, and may everyone's laboring go as smoothly!

YAHOOOOO! Just the birth I'd always dreamed of!
Hi! I am new to the boards, due in July...I have had 2 children with midwives, but in hospitals. No meds, no anything....this bab will be my last, and so I'm aiming for the delivery of my dreams-a home birth! I just wanted to know if you have any tips on delivering in your home, and if you wouldn't mind sharing your experience, I'd appreciate it! Congrats on your "little" one! That's a BIG baby! Were your other babies that big?

Well... it was a girl!
7 lbs 7oz
20 1/2 in. long
We're happy to announce that Ryan Cooper was born on May 11, 2005 at 8:45 pm via repeat cesarean... 4 weeks early due to toxemia. He weighed 6 lbs 6 oz and is 19" long. We're both home and doing great!
I've been away from the computer for a while, and wanted to post my birth announcement from way back in February!
Ingrid Solveig was born at home at 5:51pm on Feb 5, 2005. She weighed 8lbs 10 oz, and approx 19 in. She was a butterball from the start compared to her string bean big sister who was 7 lbs 14 oz and a 21 in back in 1999.
And to complete the circle of life, we had to put our first "baby" Kaya the Snuffer Dog to sleep 24 hours before. She was 10 1/2 yrs old, and been going downhill very quickly over two weeks. The last 2 days she sat at the door waiting to go outside (I think to die). I kept thinking I couldn't have my laying there uncomfortable and dying while I was trying to have a joyful birth. So I took care of her first. On the way home from the vet's office I started feeling a little strange. Woke up the next morning with contractions, and the rest will be written later!
Had my son (Cole Stewart Ivarson) three weeks early on May 18th at 5:48pm. He weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and is 19 inches long. I pushed for 7 minutes after a few hours of hard Pitocin induced labor (I had planned for a birth center birth but had to go to the hospital since my water broke and I never went into labor). I had no drugs and it felt so powerful and wonderful even though it was very painful. He's doing great (but he's a night owl!) and I'm very sleepy but so in love!
Congrat on your new little one.
Born into her Daddy's hands underwater at home on June 11, 2005 at 4:55pm
9lbs 4.5 oz
Henry Walker was born Sunday, June 19, 2005, at 10:50 pm in a beautiful **fast** home waterbirth. Go to www.flickr.com
and search for henry to see the pictures.
He was only 4 lbs, 9.5 oz and 17.75 inches long. He's three and a half weeks early, too. Wish me luck in beefing my little peanut up so the lactation consultants and the doctors will stop worrying and threatening to hospitalize him!
