I'm still a little pooped and sore, so this may not be a very long post, but we had a beautiful baby girl (Aurora) on Sunday, May 29th at 9:38am. I went into early labor on Sat at 11pm, just after watching "Orgasmic Birth", which is a great movie by the way. We had an amazing team working with us...an OB who now only does home births, a midwife, a doula and a videographer...can't wait to see the video. It was sad that our original midwife could not legally attend because she's a CNM and our baby was breech since at least 34w, but we still had an amazing experience and we got to tell her all about it at our first postpartum visit today. I'll try and give the details another time, but right now I need to lay down with my angel. Best wishes to everyone!!!! ...and thanks for all the support!

Congrats!  That is a LOT of hair!  The only baby we ever had that had hair was our third and that was because she is full AA *LOL*

My first baby was a breech home birth, and he was a boy but had he been a girl his name would have been Aurora! Congrats!
