Umi's birth

Our baby girl, Umi, was born Monday evening in the water at home. A lovely, undisturbed, instinctive birth.

I am all the more passionately persuaded of the wonder of home birth - I want Umi to have one herself!


  1. Welcome little Umi. Congratulations Debbie and family.

    Its wonderful for Umi to have had such a peaceful welcome to the world.

    Take care,

  2. What a gorgeous baby girl! So nice to be back in touch, and best wishes to A and T too. Xxx

  3. Congratulations on such a wonderful birth and beautiful baby :-) It's encouraging to hear about your positive home birth experience, in times when so many feel pressured into hospitalised births.

    Take care and enjoy your time with your new precious little one,


  4. Thank you for these lovely comments :)
    Yes, the vast majority of home birth experiences are pretty much like mine, and absolutely wonderful. It's a pity when the stories with sad endings dominate the media :(
    Stories with sad endings happen everywhere in the world, including (God forbid) in hospitals!

  5. congrats, we are waiting for our baby also to be born
