Home (Water) Birth of Our First Born Son Liam - Video

I'm so proud of my wife and so in love with my son!! He is now 4 days old. I recommend natural child birth to any couple willing and able, as well as the Bradley courses. Our mid-wife Sally, her apprentice, and our doula were all things angelic and the family was great! What a miracle birth is...

Welcome Liam!

What a wonderful memory bank the three of you have begun to fill.
Congrats!

everyone here is heroic--

including the father--LOL!

Bless the heart of any woman who has the courage to say "no" to painkillers and hospitals--

Congratulations--

Dr. Paul would be proud--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Blessings...

...to you and your new bundle of joy! :)

Oh yeah,

Did anyone notice the big Ron Paul magnet on the fridge! ;-) Now that's one doctor I'd go to the hospital for.

thanks for all the congrats!

Do y'all think the video is too graphic or personal? Perhaps I should edit. After it happened I just wanted to share with everyone. And trust me, I left the R rated stuff out. I've seen way more "graphic" home births on youtube.I thought it was a very natural and beautiful process, except for the whole after birth hemorrhage thingy that mommy experienced, luckily the midwife used her magic. Also I plan on not vaccinating and homeschooling. Thoughts on the future path?

Nothing says natural childbirth like a blow-up plastic pool...

Hey, nothing says natural childbirth like giving birth underwater in a blow up pool in your living room with people taking 300 or so pics to be uploaded onto a national website.

Either way, congrats!!

congratulations~

Best of all wishes to you and yours~

Congrats

Our son was born at home...wouldn't have it any other way.

Congrats but...

gross.

Genesis 1:28...

... and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth...

Congrats! I hope everyone is

Congrats!

I hope everyone is healthy!!!

This must be some kind of video trickery.

Everybody knows that you cannot have a live, perfectly healthy baby unless you go to the hospital and have the doctor take it by C section. You are not fooling anyone buddy. LOL

Congratulations!! We had ours at home and our oldest daughter had our first grandchild via water birth. It is a glorious and Natural event that no one should give up in favor of the terrorist medical establishment that causes more damage than good in child birth.

Thanks for sharing and blessings for you and your family.

I would also like to add that birth is natural but every birth is different. My son was trying to wave at us as he came out and he took some time and patience but my youngest daughter was "textbook" and popped out before the midwife got there. What a joy it was.

Congrats to You, Momma, and the baby...

Home-births are awesome, and are another exercise in freedom and liberty. We started out, headed down the "medical" track. Then, something clicked in our brains and we took the Bradley course (I highly recommend this parent-to-be birth-training). After our first hospital birth, we've had 7 more home births. There's nothing in the world like having your own child, in your own home, with your own family around.

Congrats!!! Many Blessings!!!

Many blessings to you and your family!!!

At 4:44 in the AM:

You brought a tear of joy to my eyes.
I have been there for seven new lives brought in to the world. Two were mine.
Most awesome. Better than a kick in the nads. No one ever asks for a second kick.
But I sure loved having more little ones. WTG!

beautiful

and congrats to all...especially the little guy

I can't wait

for all the firsts, the trips to the zoo, camping, fishing, road tripping, watching loony tunes, star wars, etc. It's like I'll get to be a kid all over again. We just changed him and that joker peed on his face!

We had our 2nd at home

as a water birth. Very cool indeed, by comparison. BTW, almost named our second son Liam also. Went with Tristan instead. :) Congrats!
