giving birth naturally - no pain medication Baby born at 9:52pm on Tuesday July 27th, 2010. 7 lbs. 13 oz. baby boy. 38 weeks pregnant (previous pregnancies were 3-5 days late so we didn't really expect labor 2 weeks early)
Any prayers for our baby boy are welcome as he recovers from some health challenges (related to his kidney and ability to urinate). He's in great hands and we hope to have him home within a week....Thank you!!
I had planned non medicated birth but birth took place hospital with my midwife because I was a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarian section) so risk is considered higher and home birth was not an option because of this. We were thankful to be in a hospital once we were surprised to learn that our newborn son needed medical intervention immediately after birth.
Update: He is doing great!! Home with us and we're all so happy and blessed! See him now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBEuhJeiYhY
