It's a BOY~

I'm thrilled to announce the arrival of our first son, Oryn Oliver, via unassisted homebirth, on 3-9-10 at 8:23am after about an hour and a half labor.

He weighed in at a whopping 9lbs 3oz (at 38 weeks exactly!) and was 20 inches long. Daddy, big sisters and I are completely in love - he's very, very precious.

Check back for more pictures and the full birth story. I'd have to put him down to type it all out and I'm not willing to do that just yet ;-)

Wow congratulations!

I thought though, that you were planning to have an assisted homebirth with a midwife? Why the change?

Well done you guys!

Congratulations! Can't wait to read your birth story... Your website and the information and experiences shared have given me so much more confidence to give birth naturally when my baby will arrive in August 2010. Thanks so much

Hi Catherine,
I saw one of your posts in the SBI forum and took a look at your website. I wanted to say congratulations on your baby boy. I know it was back in March, but I wanted to say March 9th is a great day- it's my birthday also:-)
