I know this has taken me a bit to post. It's been sort of hectic.

My little girl was born on December 29th at 5:07am. She weighed 8lbs 13oz and was 22 inches long. She was 10 days overdue and I was actually scheduled for an induction on 12/29 at 6am, but my water broke the night before so I went into labor naturally! It was so important to me to avoid pitocin, since I was going VBAC. I managed to get pretty far into labor before caving in for an epidural. Which was also important to me to stay upright to help labor along....totally worked. I also had a very nasty cold/cough and nearly coughed her out. Clara Joy was born in one contraction (two very gentle pushes). My husband, mother and MIL surrounded me. It was quiet, gentle and absolutely amazing.....best birth experience for me ever! My other kiddos are in love with their little sister.

Here are some pics from my facebook

So awesome! Congratulations! I can't believe they would even consider inducing with a VBAC. Glad all went well! Going to look at the pics after dinner.

Yeah, I know! They really didn't want to, but they wouldn't let me go passed 42 weeks either. They were able to stretch me to a 3cm on the Monday before I went into labor. I was SOOOO worried and having serious anxiety the day before the scheduled induction. I was so happy to have gone into labor on my own! She came out just an hour before I was suppose to be there for the induction.

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.
