What birth board was she on? Has there been any word?
I'm really worried at this point.
There has been no word, and Ariana posted on her birth board, and they've been lurking here looking for her.
I am starting to worry too. I hope she is just very busy!
We are thinking of you!
Okay-- I am officially worried. I hope all is well with you Taryl and baby Callie.
Update when you get a chance.....sending you lots of positive vibes!
I'm worried too Hope you are just too busy enjoying your healthy new baby to post! Best wishes, Tarly!
I've just placed a call to her birth center. I explained that I'm a moderator here and that we haven't heard from her since March 31. I asked the person to pass her the message saying that we are all concerned. That's about all that we can do because, of course, they don't give out client information.
Remember that if her birth didn't go as hoped, she may need some down time away from here. That's fine too.
Taryl, wherever you are, we are all sending you warm wishes and welcome you back no matter what happened. Birthing Naturally is first and foremost about an attitude towards birth, and you are always welcome here.
I hope everything is okay, Taryl. We are here for you.
Keeping you in my thoughts Taryl. I do hope everything is going well for you and your family.
Jennie thank you for doing that.
Taryl - thinking of you hon.
Every time I see notification about your lodge I come checking. Sending you tons of love, on pins and needles. Hope everything's ok, Taryl.
Okay, I am back, somewhat!
I know I need to post a lengthy update but I am still not up for it, so here's the short story and a picture, at least.
Callie was born Thursday, April 5 by c-section after 67 hours of induced labor and three weeks of prodromal. She weighed 8 pounds, 15 ounces and was 19.5 inches long. After an extended hospital stay for us both, she is feeding like a champ and doing well.
I am doing somewhat less well, having what looks to be shaping into postpartum depression and generally being shellshocked and exhausted. That said, with the help of my husband we are hanging in there and taking it a day at a time. Every day it gets a little better. I am not trying to avoid the birth board or here, the hospital had no internet and I was there for almost a week. In addition, I have been having a hard time getting back in the saddle since coming home. But details WILL be forthcoming and I cannot tell you all how much your support means to me. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers, we're almost out of the woods.
Here's her official hospital birth announcement and picture:
Oh Taryl, I'm so glad to hear both of you are well (physically.) We were really getting worried about you. Thank you for updating us and that picture of Callie is so cute. Looking forward to the whole story, sorry you had such a hard time of it.
She is so beautiful!
Please feel free to pm me if you need a sympathetic ear, I had PPD after my second ds.
Congrats on your little girl and I hope you feel better soon.
:bighug: Taryl, I am so relieved that you and Callie are safe! I hope that you heal well, and that you know we are here for you! Best wishes!
Congrats Taryl! She is absolutely beautiful. I hope you start feeling better soon. Mary
Oh yay! I'm so glad to hear from you! I'm glad everyone is ok. :bigarmhug:
Taryl, thanks so much for checking in. We were all starting to worry about you. Congrats on such a beautiful baby girl!
Remember that your lodge is here to help you deal with postpartum life including issues about the birth and the sleep-deprived life with a newborn.
67 hours of induced labor - whoa! You are already one mama to contend with!
