Ok...So I have news! On 12-2-06 I gave unassisted birth at home to a little boy named Chiron! More info to come. Momma and baby are doing well, but very tired.

Chiron (middle name TBA)
8# 2oz
21.5 in
Born at 2:15pm on Dec 2.

He was born after 10 hours in labor and 3 hours of pushing into his loving fathers hands. We did have a transfer to the hospital after birth due to a severe hemmhorage that didn't respond to eating placenta, herbs, breastfeeding etc... I recieved treatment and was/am very anemic from the blood loss, but all is well and we feel so fortunate at have been able to complete our birth safely at home. Thank you to all of you lovely women here at MDC who have helped me through this birth process of my first child. I am forever in your debt! I'll post a more detailed account later.

Yaaaaay!!! Welcome Little Chiron!!!

I KNOW another Chiron! And, I never ever thought I'd hear his name again! Wow!!! Sooo, cool! His parents used Huevos Ranchero for his name for a while because they couldn't decide. They ended up with Chiron Jonah. When Chiron went to college he went by CJ. Now, he's a young adult announcing his engagement this holilday season! Wow. Another Chiron! That's soooo cool!!!!

Oh, and my favorite nickname for him growing up was Chironi Rigatoni. You can steal if it you want!

Congrats!

Spark and her four firecrackers.

Awesome job mama!!!! You did all you could to take care of things at home and good for you for following your instincts to get yourself to the hospital. Even if that isn't what you had hoped for...you are here to enjoy your babe...that is all that matters!

Welcome earthside little Chiron!!!
