Here is our latest addition. Baby Ellie decided to join the world on December 2 early in the morning. The first midwife did not show up until 45 minutes after she was born. Totally wonderful experience to just be able to hold your child for almost 2 hours without anyone messing with you or trying to take the baby away for something or other. Ok, I let Alan hold her for a few minutes but otherwise we were just able to snuggle. Quite a different experience than the other 8 kids. I'd definitely do it this way again.
