Well instead of writing my birth story I'm sitting here trying to write birth announcements. Silly considering we still aren't set on a middle name. I may just send some out with only her first name.
Anyhoo just wondering if any of you have ideas for wording. I'm thinking something along the lines of...
Karen, David, and Tristan are thrilled to announce the birth of Shea.. Born at home into her mommy's arms, weighing blah, measuring blah blah, etc. blah.
I want to stress the born at home part without overdoing it but I want something unique and not necessarily crunchy. What I have so far is fine but I think boring.
Any ideas???
(still looking for something that means "twilight"...)

I don't think it's boring. I think it sounds sweet and emphasizes the homebirth part without overdoing it well.

Sounds great to me! In our email announcements I wrote "born at home..." I was proud of our homebirth and wanted people to know what we did.

I mostly lurk here, but I wanted to say that this made me laugh. Ours wouldn't be quite so nicely worded. We would have to say the baby "slid through the midwife's hands and did a brief nosedive into the birthing tub."

I think mentioning the homebirth is great, though. Our mention in the e-mail birth announcement sparked questions and that's always a good chance to educate people.
