This is Tiffany's husband Morgan. I would just like to update for her.

As you may have read my HBAC/VBAC queen brought Niamh Delphinium Thane Abrahams into the world this morning at 4:56 AM. The entire labor and birth only last just a little over 4 hours.

Niamh is a blissful image of her mother with a full head of black hair measuring in at 10Lbs and 22inch.

It may have been only 4 hours, but it was the hardest and most proud 4 hours of Tiffanys life and I would like to just say that she is So HBAC hardcore and is a prime example to those womyn that are afraid or intimidated of a VBAC.

Womyn, This is your temple and you CAN do it.
