Baby's Name: Evelyn Anne
Birthdate & Time: October 20 at 1:52am
EDD: Oct 10
Weight: 7lbs 11oz
Length: 22 inches
Labor Lasted How Long: about 1h45min. An hour or so of "hmm... those contractions don't seem to be going away" thoughts, then I woke up DH at 1am to help me, water broke immediately, we started to inflate the birth pool and suddenly I was pushing and could feel her head - barely breathed through 5 or so contractions until the midwives arrived, just in time for her to crown.

Labor Lasted How Long: active labor = 1 hour. from the first mild, regular contractions, about 5 hours.

Any other news you want to share: this was an amazing, beautiful homebirth. my induced hospital birth with #1 landed him in the NICU for his first 3 days. it was bittersweet and joyful to have my baby in my arms right away this time, and be able to nurse her, cuddle her, and keep her right at home.

Any other news you want to share: My labor was really intense, with very long contractions. Never once did I think I couldn't do it, however there were a few times where I didn't *want* to do it anymore! I can't rave enough about the birth tub, the amazing support given by my midwives and doula, or the comfort being at home brought me.

Any other news you want to share: This was my hardest labor yet, but my shortest. Babe had an asynclitic head so it took me about 5 hours of pushing to get him out. He also had very sticky shoulders, but my skilled midwife helped out there so no worries. Born at home.
