As most of you know, Lila was born AGES ago. I’ve resisted publishing any videos until now. She’s four weeks old today, and with a prompt from Kate, I figure that’s enough of a respectful pause. It was about as good a birth as you could hope for – 3 hour labour from 6am to 9am, born in water, 8lbs 5oz. I won’t get into why we chose a home birth – that’s for another post, maybe. But this is quite a nice memento of the days leading up to it (she was born 7 days after this) and once it’s up on the web, I’m sure some of you watching it will be new parents who are frantically Googling for information about what your home birth will be like. Good luck! Our two have been the most amazing experiences of my life.
