Oh my goodness Erica!!!! What a birth story!!!! I got goosebumps all over!

I always think that with my next baby I'll try to stay at home as long as possible so when I get to the hospital I don't get epidurals or pitocin... but your birth story is better than all my fantasies!!

I'm so happy for you and your family! And congratulations on your little baby girl!!!!!!!!

Congrats on your new baby girl Erica, I love her name.

Wow I bet it was a rush to have her at home rather then at the hospital right as you planned to go in. Glad you had a great birth.



Thank you for the sig Mary

Thank you for all of the congratulations! It wasn't the peaceful birth I imagined, but having my very own husband deliver my daughter was an amazing, beautiful thing. I definitely didn't choose this homebirth, but having her in the car during rush hour would have been a LOT worse.

We came home yesterday. We were able to leave after Charlotte had her newborn screening at 24 hours old (about 3pm). We had a great night last night, and I'm feeling much more rested now. I hardly slept at all in the hospital.

We took her to the pediatrician this morning, and she is doing well. We're so happy that Charlotte is here!
