Well friends, my baby girl is here! She was born this morning at just after 6am. She is beautiful and healthy. Thank you so much for all of your prayers!! Obviously I’ll be absent from here for a couple of days while I recoup, but I promise to get up all the juicy details (and lots of pictures) of the whole home birth experience just as soon as I can sit in this hard office chair for more than 5 min!

Can’t wait to tell you all about it!

** For those of you wondering, Xia is pronounced like “Zy-uh” 🙂

  1. I just wanted to share with you how awesome my first homebirth was. Better than the 3 hospital births in the past by far. It was calm and I dont really associate pain with it. It was wonderful. And now I am adjusting to life with 4. Let me tell you 4 is no thing at all compared to adjusting with 3. It appears life is running smoother for you.
