Makayla Christine was born on Thursday night, April 11!!!
She is the most beautiful little person! I'll post the longer version of our birth story later...but it was wonderful (oh so intense!) but wonderful. I feel great about the whole experience and was given such wonderful support by DH and my midwives. I went to the birth center at 4pm and delivered by 10:15pm...so I guess it wasn't a very long birth, especially for my first. (But also, I walked around 4 centimeters for over a week) Makayla's birth weight was 6lbs. 11 oz. and 20" tall. Now, I'm going to go cuddle my sweet little one...just wanted to share our birth announcement!

I hope it is appropriate for me to post here, but I can't resist...
I just attending the beautiful birth of a little girl on April 11 after the 49 hour labor of yet another amazing woman! The bebe is a trooper as well and I have a great picture of her reaching down and grabbing her umbilical cord minutes after birth. The room was filled with an exhausted yet supportive family who came into the birth room during the last few minutes of pushing and gave the mom a renewed burst of energy. This was my first homebirth as a student midwife (only birth centers so far) and now all I can say is, I get it, I understand! It is a whole different ballgame, that's for sure.

We had a little boy MYLES SANJAY on March 22nd, 7 lbs 8.8 oz, 19 inches. Dh and I came down with bronchitis immediately after the birth and then I pulled a back muscle so this is literally the first time I've been at the computer since ds was born. We had planned a homebirth and ended up transferring after laboring for two days. I will post our birth story later. ds is bfing like a little pro and gaining weight steadily. Am feeling less overwhelmed now that dh and I are feeling better. Just wanted to share our good news.

Fiona Elizabeth was born yesterday morning (April 18) at 4am. 9 pounds 1 ounce and 21" long. She came out with her hand against her face! (ouch for me!) She is telling me it is time to nurse again or else she will just waste away. I will post birth story later.

Nathaniel Brian flew into this world on May 2, 2002 (10 days overdue) weighing 10# even and 23 (!!!) inches long after a 4 1/2 hour labor and pushed out in 7 minutes and I only needed one stitch ... Do I feel amazed!

He's beautiful, his big brother Noah loves him and already he wants to eat all the time.

Yippee!!

Hi all! welcome all new babies including mine! I finally had her-a healthy baby girl after suspected as much as 4 weeks past date! (she looks about 41 weeks gestation) contractions started at 11:55 pm wednesday and she rocketed her way out at 5:41 am thursday! No meds no I.V. and no dang monitors! the best hospital birth I could ask for. we named her Ellen. She loves to nurse and sleep. Big sister is in love!

YAHOOOOO! Just the birth I'd always dreamed of!

Just a quick note to say my beautiful son, Caleb Altman, was born Friday May 3 at 5:15 pm. 7 lbs, 3 1/2 oz.. 20 1/2 inches long.
Labor was 16 hours, midwife was awesome! He has a head of curly black hair. DH helped catch him and cut the cord. Absolutely the most amazing day of my life. Longer birth story to come!

Eve Mary was born on 4/21. We had planned this wonderful home birth, but Eve had other plans. After 32 hours of labor at home following my membranes rupturing, we transferred to the hospital. A sonogram revealed that Eve was transverse. The OB tried a manual version and then we ended up with a c-section. Although it's not what we had planned, babies can't come out sideways and we felt very thankful for the medical intervention. There would have been a time that both of us would have died. The beauty of the whole process was that we felt in control of the decions the entire time and we have a beautiful, healthy baby girl.

Tess Clara Ruddy is finally here. She made her debut about a week late and arrived on May 1st. She was 9lbs. 4oz and 22 inches long. We had quite the long labor -30 hours- and had ultimately planned to go natural. However, 27 hours into it we, both mom and babe, needed a little help with the laboring process. I have to say that even though our birth did not go as planned it was still a wonderful experience and our midwife was spectacular. My husband and I felt totally in control of our experience. Well, we are loving breastfeeding and cosleeping. take care all. jen, ken, and tess
