Oliver William was born Thursday, April 12th at 1:56 am at a birth center. He is so beautiful.<br><br>
Mama is healing slowly but surely. It was a tough, natural birth. He was sunny side up, which hurrrrrrrt, and made me have pushing contractions starting at 5 cm. Fun. But we made it!!<br><br>
I have pictures and a more layman's account of the birth on my blog at <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. And 8,000 pictures on flickr - <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. I'm typing with only my left hand right now, otherwisr I'd give you all the juicy details.<br><br>
I feel like I consciously created a space of peace and confidence during labor. There were times when it waned a bit (i.e., me whimpering "i can't" in a tiny voice at the end of a contraction), but apparantly nobody even heard me. heeee.<br><br>
Anyway, being a mama is amazing. Being a family is even better. We are so in love, and have a good grove going here in our nest.<br><br>
Happy birthday to all the April babies!<br><br>
