We are thrilled to announce the arrival of Mia Yoshiko, born this morning at 3:18 at home in Caroline's Lucky Birth Pool*. Full birth story to follow, but suffice it to say that back labour SUCKS ASS but all those days of prelabour made for an extremely quick 2nd stage of labour.
I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be at home. After Mia was born, I went upstairs and had a shower in our fabulous new en suite and my husband cooked us a delicious breakfast (including soft poached eggs wooooohooooo!) It's quiet and comfortable, and I don't have to wait for the tea lady to bring me a cuppa. I've got a tea man who did that for me at 4:00 this morning, thank you very much.
I'm doing amazingly well and beyond happy. Even if I didn't get my smoothies.
*(guaranteed to provide speedy deliveries of little girls on the 19th of each month.)
