After 42 hours of total labor, 8 of which was hard labor and 15 minutes of pushing - Stella Rose was born at 3:14 AM on Saturday, May 3, 2014.
She is 6 lbs 8.5 oz and 20 inches of content, peace and joy. Already such a happy baby with a pleasant disposition. I can't wait for you to meet her!
Here's a sneak peek, from when we got back home from the birth center late Saturday morning...
Thank you so very much for all your work and dedication... There is no doubt in my mind of the great impact you and your expertise had on ensuring the birth of our baby girl was 100% natural, just like we hoped and dreamed!
