Our little girl Amelie was born on July 16th (not premature but a few weeks before we were expecting her).
Although I was induced with a drip due to complications with my liver (choleastasis) both Matt and I worked together to create a very calm, happy, active, pain medication free and ultimately quick birth (4 hours).
The experience was transformative and everyday since has been a gift- sometimes tiring, sometimes trying, sometimes hilarious, sweet and joyful- but always with a sense of tiny miracles and love.
Love from our family to yours,
Naomi, Matt and Amelie
