The slideshow (finally)

I spent hours working on this today... while my baby boy ate and slept (and I neglected the rest of my family). I should be doing relaxing things like making birth slideshows, right? ;-) This is definitely more skin than I'd show in public on a regular day, but I tried to keep it as G-rated as possible. Enjoy!

HUGE thank you to Cassie and Brooke for the photos!

I love it.

I have new pictures you can use for it. Let me know when you guys are ready for some company and I'll drop off the CD with all the pregnant belly/post-pregnant belly pictures.

So glad you felt up to doing this project, after several days of crisis/concern over Torben's infection.
The slide show gives a picture of the comfort and peace of being in your own home, moving at your own pace, with wonderful family and other supporters totally committed to you and the baby.

Great! I especially liked the strategic placement of other people's bodies for modesty by your photographer;-) The slideshow was a great overall representation of your experience. I hope your amazing courage and success inspire others.

Thank you so much for sharing your birth experiences in this blog. I am 35 weeks pregnant with my first child and I am glad to have stumbled upon your blog. I'm due next month and recently hired a doula. I'm hoping to go all natural and have a satisfying birth experience like yours! Thanks again for sharing your stories and expertise.
