My midwife and other "support" always make the yummiest potato soup while I'm laboring and, lemme tell you, homemade potato soup is THE best thing after birth. Oh my goodness, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
DD was born at 8:54 pm and I had at least three bowls full after a nice shower and getting cleaned up.
DS was born at 3:20 am and I had several bowls of potato soup and then settled in to bed to sleep. Pure heaven.
I am really looking forward to that first bowl of soup with my new baby in my arms!
This time around, depending on how I feel and the time of day I start feeling like I'm in real labor (any day now!) I might make some of my own rosemary cheese bread to compliment the soup....mmmmmm. Maybe I should just make some now......
I always tease my mw that the real reason we hire her is just for the potato soup!
