Birth Triumphant

I’d like to introduce my daughter, Maida Rose.

(We say it May-da.)

She was born in the first minutes of January 24th.

She’s lovely.


And I just have to tell the world that after laboring for 26 hours, I pushed her out, hollering and powerful as any warrior mother and it was great.

I give thanks to the Great Mother for keeping my faith strong, for sending us allies that helped us to birth naturally despite the odds, for guiding us on this journey towards VBAC, and for my own wise body that knew just what to do, and only needed a chance to do it.

Praise Be!
