Our daughter was born last Saturday at home in the water. My DH set up a website so we could share the photos. There are some from our pregnancy photo shoot, the birth, pics of the new baby and family.

Check it out at www.aspenalanna.com

Be sure to turn the sound up...since the show has sound. The site also has the birth story that DH wrote. ENJOY!

Take Care,
Sita

Sharon is amazing. I can't say enough about how great she is and how much she helped me. I had an unmedicated hospital birth with my first and tore in 3 places. I was worried about that this time. Sharon made eye contact with me and helped me to breathe/blow at the right time. I really think that if I hadn't had her support and direction that I would have torn again this time. Both my babies came out in only a few pushes. But this time I didn't tear at all.

It is a small world! Anyway, I highly recommend Sharon :)

Take Care,
Sita

Just wondering, was the assistant named Katie a student midwife by chance?

I really enjoyed your slide show, thank you for sharing. I love the song, can I ask who sings that and what it's called? I know I have heard it but I can't come up with who it is. Congrats.
