I finally put together Cora’s birth story, and if you read it, you’ll understand why there are no pictures of the actual birth (she came fast!). But I’ve had a lot of people ask me what the biggest difference between hospital birth and home birth is, and while the birth it’s self is more relaxing and comfortable in your own home, I think the biggest difference is the postpartum. I was so happy to have my midwives, Julie Hughes, Jen Anderson-Tarver and Angela Seeling here to help us welcome Cora.
Here are some pictures that Amy Swagman captured of Cora’s immediate postpartum in our bedroom. Click the pictures for a larger view. Enjoy!
