Our sweet little one was born last Sunday, March 1st at 3:04pm at our home here in Malaysia. We had a perfect & peaceful waterbirth with our midwife Racha, my neighbor & friend taking photos, and DH catching the baby as he slid into the world. I could not have asked for a better way to heal from past birth trauma ::::::::

Pascual (pr: pas-qual) Cuauhtemoc (pr. kwow-teh-mock) Palafox
7 lbs 15 ozs
19.5 inches


ETA: I will add his middle name when I figure out how to spell it~ And I will add photos later too.......sitting on the sitz bath right now and I really need to get back to bed~

Miles (December 2005) Pascual (March 2009). P's was my beautiful home waterbirth that healed me from my M's birth. natural birth, midwifery, postpartum depression, babywearing, breastfeeding.
