Hooray for a happy birth!

This week has seen a lot of loss - hearing about Haiti's devastation, loss, and mourning. In addition, one of the original professors for my lactation course, who has been ill for a while, is likely in her final days.

In the midst of all that, it's wonderful to hear about new life. I was hanging around my hometown till the very last minute of winter break, hoping to be the doula for a friend of mine. While I didn't manage to be there I was delighted to get the baby news today! He was born at home this morning, attended by midwives; speedy labor and healthy mommy and baby. (Quote: "He nurses, he sleeps, he peed!") I've seen a few pictures already and he's a cute one too! Congratulations to the newly expanded family!
