Other than that though, we were all fine. No tearing, and no lasting effects for either of us. The labour was actually my easiest - I couldn't believe it when they told me I was 10cm already. It wasn't until the pushing that things got hard.

How are you and your little one doing?
Happy to hear he's doing well! That's amazing that it was an easy labour and that you didn't tear. The right position helps so much!

We're doing great, thanks! She was so small at birth but is gaining just fine. She's about 9 1/2 lbs (maybe less) at 2 months and cute as a button!
