Thanks for all the congrats ladies!

Violet Marie was born at home on 3/24 at 2:16pm (Pacific time). Total labor from first contraction to delivery was 9 hours and 16 minutes. I was ready to push at 6 hours in but her head was caught on my pelvic bone and a tiny bit of cervix. We could tell that her head was positioned a bit sideways. My body was pushing on its own because I needed to push, but it kept irritating that last bit of cervix making it harder to get her down the birth canal. We tried a bunch of different positions and I kept breathing through the contractions and trying not to push until she was in a better place. At 2pm we felt her rotate a bit and she came out right after that. She came out face-up and she has a bit of a conehead and some head bruising from that positioning. I'll write up a more in-depth birth story soon!

She weighs 8lbs, 5oz and is 19.25 inches. She's nursing great and I'm feeling fantastic!

Here she is:


Here's me with the girls (not the best pic of me):

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
