I'm Mari's support sister and I got a PM from her earlier this morning. She gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday (1/21) morning. Baby weighed 7lbs, 1oz.

Mari got to 10cm naturally at the birth center but the baby would not descend and she ended up being sent to the hospital, where baby was delivered by C-section.

No name or pics yet, but she said she'd send them later!!

Congrats Mari!!

Thanks Shelley for posting the update and thank you all for your kind words.

I'm hoping to write and post my birth story in a few days when things have settled down a bit (if that happens...).

Congratulations Mari! Your daughter is beautiful! I'm sorry it didn't all happen as you hoped, but you should be so proud that you made it all the way through full dialation naturally. Everything just wasn't cooperating with your strong spirit. You did a great job! Have fun falling in love with your daughter.

Thank you all. I'm so in love with her and natural childbirth rocks. The first part was great and the labouring in water was wonderful. I do feel happy that I made it to 10cm and did not back out of my own will. I worked through the contractions with the slow breathing technique and though they were painful and in my back (posterior baby), I was coping well. But at the end, there was no way she could fit. I think she was bigger than we all anticipated.
