Meet the newest addition

Edd April 20th 2013. 
 
 
 
The miracle of life and this time it won't be me doing the labouring!  Instead it will be our lovely daughter Kathryn, I however have been drafted in as birth partner, *gulp*.  I only know how to do things from the labouring woman's perspective so on my reading list are a few doula books.  I've also earmarked a film about Ina May Gaskin and The Farm, courtesy of you tube.

    2. Peter re-read it before each upcoming birth, just in case we wouldn't make it to the hospital -- the next hospital here is about 45 to 50 minutes away. And even for our homebirth it was quite helpful because the midwife almost didn't make it in time.

  9. oh, san . . is the sock pattern for iona a baby sock bootie? if so, would you share it with me? there are a few dance teachers who are expecting and i've yet to conquer baby booties . . and it would be nice to try knitting some that actually stay on. i remember the girls' socks being kicked off all the time. the only ones that stayed on were the hannas.
