Photo Journal of Natural Childbirth!

I know, I know…I owe you guys 1) some pics of this baby and 2) a nice long, descriptive, honest review of labor! I myself have JUST had the chance to sit down and look at the pictures Autumn took for us of the whole thing!

I know most women would NEVER want ANYONE to see them during the birth of their babies, however I started looking at these and it just made me swell with pride! I’m totally fine with the WORLD seeing natural childbirth in action! And I honestly think I look pretty dang good doing it too!

They are very tastefully done (nothing “down there” to worry about, however there are a couple shots of breastfeeding, again tasteful, but skip ’em if you don’t feel comfortable) so ENJOY! I will of course narrate the story asap for you guys!

Also these pictures OFFICIALLY introduce our little “Clover” to the world!

    Ah Emily, those pictures are beautiful. I cried the whole way through, for you and for the memories and emotions of my own experience. You look so happy and at peace I am so glad you had a good experience (from what I see!) Enjoy every single second the time goes so quickly!
