Elliot's birth day (which she shares with her Daddy, by the way) was the most special and precious day of our lives to date. We worked hard to bring her into the world in the way we felt was best: as naturally as possible. For those interested, here is our story from the perspective of our wonderful doula, Melissa (pictured here). It's not an especially gory version, but it is about natural birth, so there is your warning.
We were (and still are!) completely shocked it was a girl!
I would do it again every day for a look into those bright blue eyes!
