Congratulations! She's a beauty, and so fortunate to have parents who are knowledgeable of and dedicated to providing her with nutrition as nature intended. I look forward to vicariously sharing your journey through GoneRaw.
how did your birth go?
Welcome Baby Zoe! Glad to know everything went great!
Thanks everyone for all the kindness!
Her birth went well and we were able to do it without any intervention or medication, which was our hope starting out. It was long and tiring - we had 24 hours of pre-labor and 18 hours of actual labor. She was born in a water tub with Ray right there. It was quite an incredible experience. We had her at a waterbirthing center in Portland called Andaluz and everyone was absolutely incredible there. I cannot say enough about them and how much they helped us have the birth experience we were looking for. Now, we're catching up on sleep and healing a bit.
vegan2raw - Yes, Zoë is "life" in Greek. The name appears to fit her well!
