THANK GOD:

He's here!!!!!!!!

Zev Jacobson Leipzig: 7lbs. -8oz., 19-1/2" long.

Born at home, unassisted, caught in the water by his Mama:



We went to the hospital right afterward. I kept our bracelets. They say: "Home Delivery" -like he was a pizza, or something.



I will post the birth story later -after a bit of a rest. I feel really good about the way it all happened. I'm proud of myself for following my feelings on this, and also for accepting help after from the hospital staff who were all so kind and congratulatory. I was expecting a different attitude from them. They were wonderful to me. I am very lucky.
