Clara is here!

Clara Lucille arrived at 3:48am weighing in at 6lbs 4oz 21 inches. I went from a 5-complete in less than 10 minutes & my body started pushing. I tried about 3 contractions on my back & that will never happen again! I squatted 4 about half of it & went 2 hands & knees 2 push 4 a while. Those were both much better. I ended up in a squatting position 2 push her out. She came out butt 1st :eek: completely freaked dr out when he realized it was a butt!!!!!!

The birth you and Clara chose, even though not exactly what (or when) the doctor would have selected had he known!

Congratulations on your little girl! :sleepygirl:

thats awesome Momma! Hands and knees and squatting/standing are supposed to be the best positions for birthing breech from what I've read so your instincts def. took over.. Good for you for listening to them! Can't wait to see pics.

Holy Cats!!! Congratulations Momma!! And welcome to the world Clara!!! (I'm crying)

Christa, I am so proud of you, I was reading your request for help in maintaining your resolve for a natural birth the other day and I thought to myself, 'I hope she has a quick and easy labor so she doesn't need our help.' It sounds like a really amazing birth, like you really listened to your body and let your instincts take over and it all worked perfectly as it should. And a breach delivery?! You make it sound like cake. Way to go. (more weeping)

Congrats and hugs and applause!!!
