just delivered my daughter!!

Well actually my wife delivered her, I just caught her. We had our second unassisted home birth at 3:32am this morning, perfect birth after two hours of hard labor.

Anya Wren Martin, is in perfect health.

Congrats on the home birth! Our last child was a home birth. I almost had to catch her. I told the wife I'd go and get my baseball mitt, just in case, but, the doctor got there with 5 minutes to spare.

Congrats again!

Congrats - and I love the middle name, Wren. Nice choice! Were these deliberately unassisted births, or is your wife just a really fast deliverer and you didn't have time to get to the doctor?

I watched all three of mine being born, including one caesarian(sp?). Now, they are all old enough to drive, but I shall never forget the sheer emotion of those moments. What joy! Hope! Concern! Anxiety! But mostly joy! Treasure them while they're tiny, because they do grow up so quickly.

Kid names are hard to come up with. Even if you think of one you like, there is always a chance it won't mesh with the baby's personality... and how do you know the baby's personality before they are born?

For my daughter, the 2 ultrasounds couldn't reveal the sex, so it was a mystery until SHE was born. I'm glad she was a girl, partly because we couldn't think of too many cool boy names!

Congratulations!

I'm curious as to whether she took any sort of pain medication or anything. Please ignore if it's too personal a question, it's just that my wife always talks about how she will want to have her children at home and without any meds...

That's what my wife wanted...rest assured by the time the baby was ready to come out my wife was begging for something for the pain.

Actually, my wife decided on home birth "because" she didnt want drugs. We had our first in a birthing center and they ignored all our requests( no drugs, dont cut the cord until we ask, not giving birth while laying on her back, etc...). The pain was actually less at the two home births since she was in total control at all times and could give birth in whatever position she was comfortable with.
That said, home birth is not something to enter into lightly. We did much research before we were ready, and knew the risks as well, minimal though they may be. If your wife (and you) are truly thinking along these lines, let me know, as I am sure my wife and I would be willing to pass along some helpful info.

Congratulations to you both.

You both are brave souls.

I welcomed my first child into the world a month ago. We went with the drug option however. She had a epidural and I asked for one, but was turned down.
