Story #1 - To Nia
Yesterday, June 21, 2004, I had the privilege of being present for the birth of a 5lb, 9oz baby girl. This was an unplanned home birth attended by 3 incredible midwives. Jacquie and her husband Dean were clients of mine. I might add that I also know them on a personal basis, as they are the sister and brother-in-law of my neighbors. - Click here to read more.
Story #2 - Birth of Abbey

We went to the hospital at 10:30 Monday night (I had been feeling contractions though since 1:30am that morning). We spent the day visiting our parents to pass the time. Then we watched TV until 10:00pm. I thought we’d better go because the contractions were getting pretty strong.  When I got checked out at the hospital I was already 6-7cm dilated and fully effaced. - Click here to read more.
