My daughter, Moira Delaney, was born 5 days after her due date on 12/30/12. She was my biggest baby at 10lbs 11oz and 21 1/4 inches. I had a natural birth in a birthing tub at a birth center surrounded by my doula, midwives, mother, husband and older children. My labor was 15 hours long with 18 minutes of pushing with no tearing. My first two children were also big. My first daughter was 9lbs 10ozs and 21 1/2 inches and my son was 10lbs and 22 inches. Moira was my biggest baby and longest labor but my easiest recovery.
She’s 11 weeks old now and 15 1/2 pounds and 25 inches and as sweet and as happy as can be.”
