    Pretty Incredible

    Of course I was there when I gave birth to my babies, but I didn't actually see what was happening. I know some hospitals have a mirror they use where the mother can watch if she wants to, but mine didn't. Two years ago my step daughter gave birth to a daughter. I was with her...

    Isn't She Lovely???

    With me being so much older than my sister (14 years to be exact) I was able to experience something that most people may never get to witness.  I was in the delivery room when my sister was born and even got to cut her umbilical cord.  She was so beautiful and I fell...

    The Miracle Of a New Life!

    My cousin had her baby today! I am so thrilled. I got the call at 9:00am this morning to head down to the midwife clinic. I feel blessed that she allowed me to witness this miracle. I helped with whatever was needed and was a quiet cheerleader on the side as she battled within...

    The Birth of An Angel

    I didn't have the courage to watch my own three children being born or maybe I was just too busy lol. But I watched my grand daughter as she came in to this world. I didn't think I could handle it but, to have my daughter in law honor me by allowing me in the...

    Wouldn't Call It A Miracle Though

    well the title pretty much sums up how I feel about it. I do not feel much about a gray little slime ball emerging from a dark crevice. Newborns do not looked finished. Anyways I witnessed this when I was about eighteen. It was film I had to watch in biology class. The camera...

    It Still Makes Me Cry No Matter How Many Times I've Seen It.

    I have seen a lot of live births and they are always a miracle to me. Messy, intense, lovely and wild all rolled up into one. That moment right before the baby is born is so amazing. There is this agony and anxiety and then instant joy and sense of awe. I don't want anymore of my...

    Our Very Own Home-birth

    The birth of our first son in the hospital was cold, cramped and miserable.  My wife wanted our second son born at home. I was a little leery but it was her choice.  It was a good thing that we planned a home-birth because, as it turned out, we had no choice.  The...
