OMFG I just saw this! Congratulations Julie and Mark! Welcome to the world, Ember! I'm looking forward to reading you birth story WHENEVER you feel like writing it and can read between the lines enough to have some idea of what must have happened! You're so lucky to have been able to catch your own baby; I'm afraid I'm just not "there" with trusting myself enough to do that (well, maybe next baby if I can still conceive when I'm 45 or 46) and admire you so much.

Wow, congratulations! Welcome, baby Ember. I've been checking on this thread from time to time and thinking about you. That's incredible that you were able to be so strong during all those weeks leading up to the birth. Especially in a hospital setting!

Sounds like you rocked their world, mama!

I've been reading this thread daily and sharing it with my husband too. He'll be happy to hear about Ember's safe/healthy arrival.

We've both been impressed by how things have unfolded and your determination to keep your power intact.

Blessed Be!

I've been following your thread for a while. I've been very interested since I am at the same point in pregnancy that you were (35 weeks today). So glad you have been able to fend off the medical staff and have a great birth by yourselves! Hope you and baby Ember are both doing great and get to go home soon! Congratulations!
