(guest typer/poster... "WF", but GTR's words)
The baby bean has safely arrived! It was a long journey that began at home, then with a wonderful midwife and doula in a "birth house" in town, then hospital for "augmentation" and finally "surgical extraction" via incision. (the poetic wording of the consent forms)
44 hours after water break the baby bean arrived!
It wasn't the birth story we were expecting but its been a strong empowering experience none-the-less. Three almost birth stories in one! More (and photos) later.
WF's note: GTR-the-Mom is recovering well, and baby's doing well. We hope to be home soon.
