Born at home in the water after approx 4 hours of labor and 30 minutes of pushing. Ended up with both a backup midwife (who didn't make it in time) and a backup doula (main doula was already with a mom in labor), but the midwife I did hire has a wonderful apprentice who only lives about 10 minutes from me and she was there. If I had it to do over again, I'd hire her directly b/c she was wonderful. The apprentice made in for the last 30 minutes or so.
Big squishy baby! Congratulations, mama!

I would also like to state on record that this was my fourth child, third VBAC, second HBAC and first water birth. My c-section was for "CPD" of a 9 lb 6 oz baby with all my VBACs being larger and having the same size (or slightly larger) heads.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

Updated!

And haha, aylaanne. My contractions started at 7pm, after a full day of work and THEN I got to have 26 hours of labor. So yeah, the photos of me are pretty grim.
