Friday the 12th Saylix Wilder (“Wilder”) was born at 8:51pm weighing 8 lbs 05 oz.
I was over 41 weeks so I did acupuncture with a different person (Matt, who is lovely) then we emailed with on Wednesday and then again at 1:30 on Friday trying an electronic stimulation induction and then went for a walk. While eating dinner I felt a pop just after 6pm and soon realized my water broke. I called the birth team before contractions started and with in about 15 min they had started 2 min apart just like last time.
We had a home birth in the water and the midwife did great with the double cord wrap around Wilder’s neck and all went well. Kids were present as well as H and our donor :)
The night the baby was born, H and I had a long talk about how wonderful of a practitioner you are. How you balance kind, caring, nurturing with bad ass and community organizing.
Thanks for everything you do and did to support us and this pregnancy.
