Sorry I haven't been on as much. I see we are all very busy lately. I wanted to finally share Lilah Rose's birth story-it's laden with birth pics too for those lurking! I finally got the DVD from my midwives today.
Note: My fourth boy (Oliver) was my first homebirth and emerged with a triple and very tight nuchal cord. Apgars of 2 and 3 prompted immediate oxygen help (his heart never stopped, but his lungs never started) and transfer to hospital. 21 days of NICU-and two years of developmental testing finally certified us a normal healthy unscarred baby boy.
Your ds's story about the triple & tight cord makes me realize how lucky we were...Maybe's cord was triple and tight too, but somehow she was completely unaffected by it. Maybe because it was sooooo long....but her apgars were 8 and 10.
