I had my baby yesterday! Welcome our newest Baby Boho...Cedar James Racca. Born 12/19/15 @ 3:37pm. 7lbs 3oz & 21" long. We were team green, RV homebirthers & found out my ridiculously hard labor & delivery would bring Earthside a most perfect son to add to our already most perfect 2 daughters. I feel so blessed that he picked me to be his Mommy.

Born at home, in our RV, with a fabulous team of people here to help ease him into this world. 12 hours of labor...about 4 hours of that spent pushing!

I did a lot of my laboring in my inflatable tub & trying other push positions unsuccessfully, but in the end, I had him on the toilet, after some seriously primal moments & gutteral yells, with my incredible Husband being my anchor...mentally AND physically. I wanted so badly to give up after all that...but he wouldn't let me. As always, he knew exactly what to do & look for & more importantly, knew exactly how to help me get mad enough for that last seemingly impossible push.

Then, the "I did it!" moment that I'm so glad my photographer was there to capture. I cry all over again every time I look at it. That picture is everything. That was my wanting to give up AND my not giving in. That was my screaming at everyone to take me to the f** hospital, or I would call 911 myself...then telling myself I would go to the hospital after the next push...and pushing at least 5 more times. But internally chanting "1 more push, then hospital". I wanted drugs. I wanted this baby cut out of me. I wanted to shoot myself...literally, at one point. I had such a self-defeatist attitude...which played my enemy the whole day, but in the end, I conquered not only my fears, but myself, as well. And then, I had our beautiful son in my arms.

So yea. This first picture is everything.
