Elly's Birth Slide Show

Here's a slide show of Elly's birth. It does have a couple of pictures of the actual birth, so don't watch if you don't think you want to see my undressed legs (no, there are no direct, graphic shots, but thought I'd warn you). :o)

oh man, talk about a moment when I'm sitting at my computer, grateful that my hubby's at work...that was so beautiful, I couldn't stop cryin'! Way to go Doreen!! :)

Congratulations Doreen! What an amazing birth! It made me even more ready for this baby and even more home birth hungry. :) Hope you are recovering beautifully!

I have to agree with Erin Cluff, that was absolutely beautiful. The music really adds to it. You know watching that truly shows you why the family is so important. You have a beautiful family and you look so gorgeous for just giving birth. By the way, we have become friends with an acquaintance of yours, Kristal Watrous. Her husband works in the Biology dept. with Aaron. Anyway, she wants to see your blog, if you wouldn't mind letting me know the actual address, that would be great. If you just want to email me, my email is accaduffy@hotmail.com. CONGRATULATIONS DOREEN AND FAMILY!!

Truly inspiring and beautiful. This makes me SOOO excited for our upcoming home birth. I love how peaceful and beautiful the whole thing looked. I love that your older kids are present and obviously excited by their new sister. I can't wait for my kids to be at this birth. Congratulations!

That was such a special slide show. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. I'm glad you were able to have her at home. It must've been a great experience.

Doreen said...

Thanks all! :o)

Mimi, do you have an announcement to make? :p

Serin, didn't know you're planning a home birth! I need access to your blog... Email me, please? doreen1999 at yahoo dot com

Kelley, I'm excited for you! I'm almost jealous, hehe. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat (if I wanted a fifth child...). :D

Larissa, it was great. I loved it! :o)

Serin said...

I'm not planning a home birth. I really, really wish I was, but DH is not on board. :(
