Hi Ladies!

I have kept you with me throughout my new mothering journey; including the beads by my side on the birth alter in hospital, thank you so much for your support!!!

I got, for some unknown reason, preeclampsia…me the homebirth midwife, ah…the irony. However, I had the best care possible at Toby Hospital in Wareham, MA and am very grateful to my midwife and her backup docs for their respect and for going out on a limb for me in allowing me every chance possible for a vaginal delivery, including keeping me under thier care at a primary care hospital.
I can not say enough about the staff and care providers, every hospital should be like this! They are not perfect but so so kind and family friendly...incl sleep with your baby friendly kind of stuff.

And though most unnatural with meds up the wazoo for preeclampsia and induction, I did delver vaginally after three induction attempts…third time a charm. 9 days in hospital over Christmas…the family had come for Christmas from afar so they got to be at my home and come visit…and even see the babe…so that was good timing, in a way.

Our beautiful, precious little Tobias Yule was finally successfully evacuated from the womb on December 27th at 2:35am. 36 weeks and 2 days…5Lbs 5oz, 19in...skinny lil guy! Great eater from the start, ilhamdullehlah!!!, as he needs to fatten up! We are finally at home on bed rest but preeclampsia seems to be resolving well. Now, if someone could solve the sleep problem...LOL!

Will post birth story and pix in the next few days.

Congrats on a healthy baby!

Three inductions? Yikes. Glad you got your vaginal delivery after all that.

Oh, I'm so glad you and baby are ok! you've been in my thoughts a lot lately. Even though you didn't get the birth you'd imagined, thank goodness for a good birthing team who did everything they could to help you get as close to it as you wanted. Glad you and babe are home and are recovering well and that he is eating well... enjoy your precious boy! :

Congratulations Paige!!! Tobias is so beautiful and I love his name! I have been so worried about you, b/c I happened to catch your last post about needing to go to the hospital for some tests a couple of weeks ago. Well, i have been searching for new posts from you daily, just wanting to know everything was OK. I was so relieved to see this post today. I'm so thrilled to hear your report about Toby hospital and the care you got there. (4 more weeks for me) Darn placenta is still in the way. Enjoy your new blessing....I'm so very happy for you.
love to you and your new family,
Monica (from Elizabeths pre-nate class)
