Wow, thanks for sharing! And where did you find such an awesome doctor? (I'd really like to know--could you PM me when you have the time?)
I love, love, love the name!
What a fantastic birth. Congratulations, mama!
Wow, wow, wow... What a beautiful, sacred experience that must've been. I am so moved by a father catching his own baby. There is just nothing more beautiful, and *right*. Dh and I just experienced a UC and it's forever changed the dynamic of our relationship--our life, really..
Ride that birth high, mama!
What a beautiful story and pictures! Congratulations!
Thank you for sharing. I loved the pictures. And the wrap was a great idea. I think I need to find or make one of those for my next birth.
Wonderful story. I think my dh would have panicked, but yours sounds like he did an amazing job.
amazing and gorgeous
I agree that sometimes what we don't know helps to not get in our way! I was able to help a mama who had surpirse twins and one came breech and although I had suspected she could have 2 in there she did not want an US to confirm it, she just wanted to have complete and utter faith and it was too her and her babies benefits.
Amazing pictures and love her name too!!! Welcome to the world sweet Cricket!
this is so beautiful!!!!!! THANKS FOR SHARING!!!!
What a beautiful baby to add to a beautiful family! Thank you so much for sharing your story and the wonderful pics. Kiss your cool, calm, and collected husband for me--what a guy!
Absolutely incredible mama!!! What an amazing family you have
And gorgeous, too! Congratulations & love the name Cricket

So beautiful mama!!
I don't think I'm ever going to forget the incredible picture of her darling little foot coming. Just precious. I am SO happy for you that you birthed her UC. What a perfectly normal miraculous birth.
Congrats and thanks for sharing this story. It's wonderful to see that a breech delivery can be as normal as any.
Beautiful breech birth story! Thanks for sharing!
Love the name!!
/For some reason I can't access your story, stupid computer is very slow. LOL

OMG..that was a simply amazing story!! I'm so glad you listened to your intuition and had the birth you and Cricket deserved..what a great story! Excellent pictures as well, and your DH did a great job remaining calm and helping you to get the job done. CONGRATS!!!!
My baby is currently breech and I've been searching for positive vaginal breech stories. A friend directed me to your story and I am currently in tears, so beautiful, and your husband is truly a rock. I also love your childrens' names.
I am eerily moved by your story too as this baby was very much a surprise, conceived on the cusp of my own doula/CBE/birthy career taking off and I had the same ambivalence at first. I've also had a rough pg but you have reminded me: "I trucked on knowing that this was the last time that I would have/or get to feel this in my life. An honor and a burden!"
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your wonderful story and pictures. I still have lots of time for this baby to turn, but I know if she doesn't, I can draw on the faith of women like to you allow me to trust that my body and my baby will do what it needs for this one to be born safely.
Beautiful!! - You, the baby, your whole family, the birth- beautiful! And, um, has your husband considered a career in midwifery/doula?
