Josephine Esther was born at 7:17am July 2nd at home!

Labor was SO fast! DH was holding Josephine's head in his hands when one of my midwives came in the house and running up the stairs. (My other midwife missed the birth!) DH and my MW caught the rest of her together while I was standing up in the bathroom.

My EDD was July 9th and it's my first baby so I REALLY wasn't expecting this birth! We have breastfed and napped, although, now that the MW's are gone breastfeeding is harder, but I am trying not to worry.

She is 20 inches long
8.2 pounds
big head of black hair

Grandparents are coming over (and bringing Mama pizza) now! I'll post pics and birth story later- Good luck with your births!:

Newly Single-Mama. Raising homebirth baby, Josephine, July '09.

Welcome baby! You sound so positive and happy in your post! I can't wait to hear your birth story, I love when first time mamas have straightforward, quick births!

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.
