Announcing...

It's a ........





GIRL!

Anna Marie Anderson was born at home this morning, on her exact due date, at 6:16 am, weighing 6 lbs 13 ozs. Mother and baby are well.

My labor was short, but intense. The midwife and her assistant arrived at our house shortly after 3 am. I will write a more detailed birth story soon.

Thank you to all who prayed!

  15. Congratulations, she's so cute! How fun to have 3 little girls so close in age. She seems so alert for being only a few hours old, that must be due to the lack of drugs and such in he little body. I just wanted to say also that although I started reading your blog to hate on you for some of your views, you've completely inspired me to eat healthy during pregnancy, not get regular ultrasounds, have a drug/intervention free birth and not vaccinate. I'm sure you don't care lol but with all the hate you get I thought I should at least tell you that you've converted one former hater into a home birth/breast feeding fanatic! and I was all about epidurals and formula before! Not trying to steal the focus away from little Anna, now just seemed like a good time to bring it up. Oh also one question for you, might be a stupid one, do you get birth certificates for your kids? Congrats again

  23. Since Zsuzsanna might not get to your question for awhile, yes, homebirth midwives do issue birth certificates through the state of Arizona (or wherever they're practicing). They can also do the heel stick newborn test, if desired, plus all the other stuff (vitamin K shot, etc.) if the parents want it (which we usually don't!). :)

  38. She is a beautiful baby. I'm glad that everything went smoothly. I think it's wonderful that you had a home birth. There are too many medical interventions at the hospital. You were low risk so it was an excellent choice for you to have your baby at home. It's neat about how Solomon, your husband, and you were able to bond with Anna quickly.

    It's nice that you have 3 girls and 3 boys now.

    I look forward to hearing your birth story.
