I just got a text from Jamie about an hour ago. Romy Clover was born at 1:14 am this morning, weighing in at 9 lbs 1 oz and she says they are both doing great. Congrats mama!

Congratulations to the family!

Sounds like a fast labor! When did her water break? Just a few hours before birth? Whoohoo!

Yep, it seems just under 5 hours after her water broke, her baby girl was born. I hope mine goes as fast!

Thanks everyone!! I've been spending the last few days enjoying Romy and sleeping as much as possible (which is not a lot, lol). It was an incredibly fast labor. I'll post more details later but basically contractions picked up about 30 minutes after my water broke and I was in transition within 2 hours. I pushed for a little over an hour and delivered Romy sunny side up squatting in my living room. After 3 hospital births I am in awe of the whole homebirth experience. It was so wonderful and empowering.
I'll post pics soon!!
