Wow, it seems like your birth was quite challenging at a certain point. I was happy to read your honest thoughts and comments - yeah HB is not always butterflies and pussycats!

Congratulations on a safe birth, so glad to hear you trusted and appreciated the way you were treated by your MW and the hospital team.

Enjoy your little nursing baby and it's good to know you have some good help during your recovery.

Oh, wow. She's beautiful, and the picture with your older daughter is precious. I'm sorry your homebirth didn't work out, but thank goodness for other options when things go awry! It sounds like you're both doing great.

Congrats mama and welcome baby Cora!!!
I'm also sorry to hear about the homebirth not going as planned, but glad to hear that the transfer wasn't terribly dramatic either. Enjoy your new addition!!! She's a cutie!
