Tonight’s birth was awesome, pretty easy and surrounded by my husband, kids, mom and fantastic midwife and her apprentice.
The whole story will be shared tomorrow. But I figure you’re really reading this to just find out if we had a boy or a girl.
Welcome to the world Helena Gabrielle. (Helena is pronounced Ha-leh-na, not like the state capital.)
She was born tonight at home, in an inflatable fishy pool. Birth time was 7:59pm. She weighed 8lbs10oz, although she pooped three times before she was weighed, so at birth she may have been more. She was around 20 inches long. Going to head to bed soon.
Her brothers are smitten, especially Nick.
