Water Birth Story

Baby will be on time I always thought.  I had an early ultrasound at 11 and a half weeks and those were pretty accurate.  Going off that date our little biscuit was due March 16th, the day before our anniversary. This year’s anniversary gift?  Labor.  Family from all over was flying in a few days before and flying out a few days after, nothing short of risky! We wanted to hold off on knowing the gender so we could be surprised…

The Birth of Micaiah Lynn – VBAC on Father’s Day

Chiara’s Water Birth

It was March 2010…We were so excited to find out that we were pregnant with our second child due in November… it was quite a surprise! Our first son, Alessandro was gently brought into this world with the help of the loving hands of Beth Overton, our midwife, in January 2006, so of course, she was the first person we called when our pregnancy test came back positive this time! We started our monthly visits, which are always so great,…
