Sarah - thanks for sharing this! I'm planning a home water birth and it helps to hear other women's experiences.

Awesome!! I have (since posting this story) had another child via waterbirth and had about the SAME amazing experience, just quicker (he was out in 2 pushes in 2 minutes). J was born in August of 2011. The tubing you see in the pics is for the IV antibiotics (GBS positive). I had no pain relief (but of course the hot water helped). Beware: I was a bleeder!



Here are pics from my daughter's birth:














1st latching, within minutes of her birth:



My son:
Getting checked in. I was at a 4-5 (cm) and 90% effaced! And ready to rock-and-roll!












He stopped crying once in my arms.


(Don't worry: he pinked up after a few mins, especially when he got the liquid gold!)
