We welcomed Arthur Meriwether on Saturday morning at 9:22 AM after only 6 hours of active labor! 8-10 good pushes and out he came.
We had a fantastic labor support team, wonderful midwives, and supportive friends... I couldn't have asked for a better birth after a mediocre hospital experience the first time (2006) and a C-section for DS1 (2008).
Don't let anyone tell you a primary HBAC is out of the question, if that's what you really want, choose your providers carefully, eat well and prepare. You can do it!
All the best -
ps now to check out all the cute baby pictures on this DDC!!!! Best of luck to Mamas who are still waiting for January babes.
