Last night at 10:35pm - our sweet baby boy, 6lb 9oz :

Still working on the name. . .

An awesome, roar-y homebirth - pushed him out facing up (OP) in 9 minutes over a virtually intact perineum.

We're all very pleased and enjoying our babymoon

I love your synopsis (the midwife speak ) and am so glad you have a healthy, gorgeous son to add to your family! Good job birthing your sunny-side-up babe!

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