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).
