Yesterday, after a slow morning of mild, spaced out contractions, my labor kicked into high gear around 1 pm. We screeched into the hospital at 3:15, I got into the room fully dilated, and my midwife arrived after I had begun pushing (on my hands and knees, much to the horror of the doctor on call). Silas David was born at 3:53 pm. He had mild shoulder dystocia, but it was all fine in the end. He is 9 lb. 6 oz. (my biggest) and a cutie!

Ser, mama to Luke (7) and Henry (4) and gratefully welcoming a new babe in December '09

Congratulations! Sounds like it was a bit of a whilrwind. I love the name Silas.

With my youngest three kids, I puhsed on my hands and knees; I find it so much more comfortable than anything else.

Yay for a healthy baby & mamma - and kudos for doing what feels right!!!!

If you want to sound wise, go to school. If you want to be wise, go to nature.
