Harper Tribann McCarty

In Case you are squeamish you should just skip the first two pics here.  The first two pics are of the placenta.  I was given a lesson by Linda, the amazing midwife that blessed us through Harper Tribann's birth.  He was literally born in the caul, the chorion was still intact.  Just before his head exited the vaginal canal Linda was able to see the hairs on the top of Harper's head swaying in the amniotic fluid.  It is a very rare event that can't happen in the hospital due to the "surgeon" breaking the amniotic sack as a matter of protocol while inducing labor.  I'm going to stop writing now because this is a photo blog and I fully intend on writing a blog on the amazing experience that was Harper Tribann McCarty's birth...and my wife turning into a goddess before my very eyes while birthing our second son naturally, with no epidural...just her and the primordial dance that is child birth done nature intended it to be.  Expect more here at Epiphany Now about the rare experience of natural birth in a "first world" country...whatever the fuck that means.  

Tribann's placenta

This is the side that Tribann saw while in the womb. 

If it had been 911 I would have shit a chicken

The midwife took this pic cause apparently women can't help themselves when a big hairy man holds a baby ;0)

right at an hour after he left his mother's Eden

Harper's first daddy nap...he has a proclivity towards sleeping on my chest...probably likes to listen to my loud heart beat

Congrats on the new child. Like Zen, Tribann seems to have your eyes.

Tell GM that I said hi and wish her all the best.
