The latest "homemade"

My latest "homemade" is Phoebe Elise Haws. Here is a picture of my two homebirth babies. I love doing homebirth! Since my labors are so easy, and I have such healthy babies, this is definitely the best option for me.

I was proud of myself, because this labor I was in control the entire time. My breathing was great, and I was able to focus and completely relax through the contractions. It was thrilling! I love the feeling of doing it all by myself, with no drugs. What a rush!

Of course, it was only 2 hours of "hard" labor, and two pushes she was out. That's my story every time. If any body was made to have babies, my body was made to have babies. It has been such a blessing to us. We are so grateful for the chance to do it this way. Thanks Joe! I couldn't do it without your support!!!


  1. Love the cheeks - great job on a great homebirth. Can't wait for mine! Wish I could say it's over in two pushes, but here's hoping.
    Congratulations - she is beautiful!

  2. Yay! You have a blog! How fun. I have to admit, I am jealous of your labor story. Maybe I will have better luck this next time :)
