Woohoo, congrats!! Sounds like an amazing birth - and I love the name Nico.

Incidentally, my sister-in-law also had a 'double waterbirth' - my niece Poppy was born in the caul. Quite rare, actually - and supposedly very good luck!

The pool worked out great! I could not wait to get in I feel like it really helped me relax between contractions....

Good Luck!!
