It was absolutely wonderful. My baby girl (surprise because although I wanted a girl, I was sure this child would be my 4th boy), arrived a nice 8lbs 5oz 21.5inches at home in my living room in the water. Dad caught her, and she was greeted lovingly by mother, 2 wonderful midwives, doula and my younger sons ages 5 and 2.
It was a blissful labor and birth, followed by an even more blissful post partum period as I ate corn dogs on my own couch, nursing my baby and was greeting by cake, strawberries and a singing group of women wishing my daughter a happy birthday!
All went well, no problems at all, despite slight meconuim and a true knot in the cord (oh the horrors!)
By the way, her name is Simone Renee and of course I believe she is absolutely beautiful.
Congratulations, Sweetheart!! Beautiful picture. With 3 big brothers she'll be well protected along with pretty much blamed for everything..lol
I love her name...Simone is gorgeous.
I love it! Welcome Simone Renee!
All the best,
