Congratulations on your beautiful baby

I went through something similar with my 3rd baby. Ds's head came out but the rest of him was stuck. I had naturally gotten into hands and knees when I started pushing, but also had to have the midwife manually extract him. He was stuck for over 3 1/2 minutes which was like eternity for me. I had no tears either
Afterwards I kept thinking how glad I was that I was at home because I shudder to think what wouldv'e happened at the hospital.
I did have alot of bleeding which lasted for almost 8 weeks post partum, and still at almost 11 months later, I don't feel quite the same.
I am glad to hear that you and your baby are safe and healthy

Congrats! I am still a little squirmish about having a homebirth because of all the what-ifs and hearing a story like this that involves a homebirth with complications that still ended up fine makes me feel more confident. Thanks! And enjoy your little angel!
