Hello, this is To-Fu's partner posting. We had our baby boy last night at a planned homebirth, January 25, at 5:44pm after 13.5 hours of labor. He is a beautiful, healthy 20.5" long 7 lb 12 oz baby who has yet to be named. Once Mama recuperates she'll post the birth story and some pictures.

cheers,
--steven

So happy for you! We were due the same day and when I was in labor on the 23rd, I kept thinking of you and wondering if you were having your baby yet. So glad you did!

Congrats To-fu! I am very glad your contractions didn't last for a week! I can't wait to hear more about your homebirth. It sounds like you did great!

I also can't wait to hear what you name your son!

Having your babe in your arms is such a wonderful feeling...It's been 2+ weeks with Nico here, and I am so happy he is here. Congrats again!
