On any given day you are most likely to find us communing with the gnomes and the fairies Under The Old Oak Tree

Maggie Rose

In late October, 11 days after my due date I finally went into early labor and had the baby the next morning after only an hour and a half of active labor.  My beautiful girl was born at home, in my bed (we had anticipated a water birth, but she came so fast we couldn't get it set up in time).  The birth was totally different from what I had expected and prepared for, but, as I told my midwife, it was a perfect, beautiful and healing birth experience.

Miss Maggie Rose has been such a blessing to our family and we are all so in love with her.  W is a wonderful big brother and is truly devoted to his baby sister (though he still sometimes wishes she had been a baby brother).

  1. Oh my gosh look how beautiful she is! Welcome to the world little one. My well planned out waterbirth ended up happening on the living room floor as I knelt with my head on the couch, sometime no matter how hard we plan nature just takes over, I wouldn't have changed a thing though.


I love hearing from you! Please leave comments!
