I've got Elliott's home waterbirth video up on my blog now, if anyone was interested in watching the more intense few minutes of his birth. :)

I can't believe that was over two months ago! Geez.

So gorgeous. Well done. The video is kind of haunting, especially with the last song. I'm so happy that you were able to document it all so well. What a cherished keepsake that will be. Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks mamas! I don't know how many times I've watched it myself. I think I kept figuring that I must have imagined away the bad parts of his birth, since I couldn't remember anything but bliss. Intensity, sure, but bliss. But after watching it and reading the midwife's charts, his birth was exactly the way I remembered it. It's so special to know that I'm not making that up!!
