Sunday Surf: Birth and Spitting and More Birth!

The biggest thing this week was the heat! Oh, and my dreadlocks, of course! It has been over 100° here and our air conditioner just can't seem to battle it. It's been well over 90° inside our travel trailer. Sasha got sick. We got a box fan. We're still considering a window unit air conditioner and trying to get our awning out. Meanwhile, here are a few of links for you.

Amazing and rare photo!

I've been told that being born still in the sack is a sign of good fortune. I have even heard tale or two of babies being born like this. I wanted to try with Ronni, but they wouldn't let me at that hospital.

There is even a great tandem nursing twins photo in this one!

Ruby Jane's Home Water Birth Story

Well I guess we'll just make a little theme here. This birth... oh it is so damned perfect! I actually still have a little bit of a hard time when I read about perfect births because while I am satisfied with my experiences, I had wanted to have a home birth. I'd wanted to try a water birth. This birth is even more perfect than that, including a birth in the caul! and a rainbow! Seriously, go check it out.
