George Owen was born on July 2 at 1:33 a.m. and he was a big boy! 9lbs. 4oz and 21″ long. I knew he was bigger than my first (6lbs. 11oz.), but he surprised me! And, I didn’t think two births were quite alike, but mine were very similar! And both had such amazing outcomes…what a miracle!

I miss Blooma yoga soooo much but I am also enjoying my new role as a mom:) Our “little” girl was born on July 1st via c-section. She was 10 lbs 3 oz and beautiful! I have attached her pic at 3 weeks old. Looking forward to some yoga when I am able to.
Dear Blooma community,
Thank you for your ongoing support and for sharing your wisdom with me every week at yoga class! It definitely helped me last week as Aaron and I gave birth to our beautiful daughter Elise Ann (4 weeks early!).
Our baby girl Elise Ann arrived Thursday, July 7 at 6:11 p.m.! She is more beautiful than words can describe, and has done really well considering she made her grand entrance four weeks before our “due” date:) Elise was 5 lbs, 14 oz and 20 inches long. She has lots of dark hair!
Needless to say we were pretty shocked when my water broke at 4 a.m. Thursday. After scrambling to grab everything that hadn’t been packed in our hospital bag yet (we were procrastinating!) and getting a quick shower in, we arrived at the hospital by 7:15 a.m. Labor progressed very quickly throughout the day and ended with 10-15 minutes of pushing; so a very intense, but quick birth!
After a short stay in the hospital, we headed home Saturday afternoon. While we weren’t able to do a water birth as we’d hoped because of her gestational age, we were able to have the unmedicated birth we were hoping for.
Aaron was an incredible support and coach during labor and is turning out to be super dad with Elise (did we doubt that at all?!) I think his visit to prenatal yoga class during Father’s Day week helped give him a few pointers to use during my labor.
I’m healing very well and feeling good (beyond the sheer exhaustion, of course). Blooma was a great help to me in preparing for birth — both mind and body. Thanks to all!
As you can imagine he is the best looking baby boy in the world!!! See attached pictures. It is amazing how much time he takes – thus this delay in sharing our wonderful news with you.
The delivery went well, however I am not spiritual enough to say it as beautiful. The outcome is beautiful but the process I could do without. Looking back I realized how oblivious I was. My contractions started Thursday night but they didn’t progress so I thought I just ate something wrong and I thought I had cramps. I went to work on Friday, was pretty busy so I didn’t pay much attention to myself. I didn’t feel 100% but I felt OK.
It was only after dinner on Friday that I realized that something is going on. I finally stopped being busy just to realize that I had contractions and that they were progressing. We stayed at home until 6 a.m. on Saturday morning, went to the hospital and Philip arrived at 11:12 a.m.
I had only about an hour of pushing, I am sure thanks to the yoga I did with you. Thank you for that. Sarah – I found my cave in the bathroom for most of the time at home.
