Hey Everyone!

 

Hannah Dean was born Wednesday January 5th at 5:12 am. We had a wonderfully successful VBAC! I can't be happier. My active labor was just under 7 hours long. My fastest yet. We just got home today. I didn't get the second dose of antibiotics so we had to stay at the hospital an extra day due to me being GBS+. 

 

I am going to post my official birth story in the VBAC forum because it feels more appropriate there. 

 

I will say if you are anywhere near the Seattle area and can deliver at Group Health downtown you MUST! My midwife and all of the nursing staff were so amazing. My nurses were so well trained in natural childbirth and so supportive and helpful.

Congratulations again!  (I have been FB stalking you, waiting for Hannah).  She was the same size as my first baby (7lbs, 7oz 19.5 long)

Too funny because I was FB stalking you when you were due and I had not seen you post for a bit. ;)
