Congratulations! I read every word, so thank you for not removing any of it :). He’s a beautiful boy and you both look amazing. You had me crying hard at the part where he stared at you with a look of recognition and stopped crying when you first held him. 

I also love so much how you trusted your midwife completely throughout the entire process, even if it wasn’t the birth you had anticipated. That trust must have made the process so much easier.

WOW!!!! thank you for sharing all the details.  I, too, am looking for a drug free birth/labour, but like you said, things can always turn the other direction, which i am slowly getting mentally ready for.  Congratulations, mama! He is one adorable little man and you, my dear, look amazing!  :))) xox

@bananasareyellow:  What a WONDERFUL birth story! And he is so cute. You had to make a lot of tough decisions that weren’t in your birth plan, but it is great that you were so willing to do that and so cool about it. Congrats to you and your husband on your adorable boy!

OH what a wonderful birth story!  I too was tearing up at the “moment of recognition” part and am so excited for our baby to arrive in +/- 6 weeks!  🙂  Congrats again!

I was SO EXCITED to see this pop up! Holy cow, congrats mama! You were a total champion, and I’m so glad that your medical team was so supportive and attentive. I was really impressed that they didn’t push you to a c-section but kept working to figure out a way to make it all work. There are some amazing doctors out there and it sounds like you had an amazing team – I wish everyone had access to that level of hospital care. 

I know your labor didn’t go as planned, but it sounds like you and your DH really made a great team. And baby Matthew is beautiful! So glad that big boy is out thriving. Hopefully you guys will get a little more sleep soon. 

ETA: Seriously, thanks for taking the time to write that all out for us!
