Hello World! The homebirth of our 3rd baby

Clearly, I haven't blogged in a while!  I've been on a little 'maternity leave' since the birth of our 3rd baby, a little boy, at the end of November.  His birth was my second successful VBAC.  He was born into my hands, at home, in the water, with his dad and both of his siblings by my side.  I believe that women, and the world, need more joyful stories of natural childbirth (instead of the hollywood horror versions).  If you would like to read a detailed account of my son's birth I have decided to share it, along with a few photos (not graphic), here.

Congratulations on your recent home birth. We too had our daughter at home last July, and I fully agree how we need to share our wonderful birth stories. You have a beautiful family, and I am thrilled to see you are working toward midwifery and including such things in your sweet blog! We adore our midwives! Blessings!

Thank you and congratulations to you too! I have been outside the blogosphere for so long now, I have much catching up to do! I am sure I have missed many amazing recipes on your blog. Will have to pop over there today and see what might inspire next weeks menu!
