Wow. That is terrifying. I can only imagine the emotions you went through while holding your precious daughter and realizing how diffrent your birth story could have turned out. I think I would have turned into a weeping ball of mush. She is gorgeous. Congrats!

Re: Lennon Maxine's Birth Story (2 hour labor/waterbirth/rare placenta abnormality)

I had a velamentous insert and vasa previa with baby #7. It was seen on an ultrasound at week 17. They kept track of it and knew it ran along the top of my uterus. My water was not broken during labor and burst as I was birthing. All was well.

I also birthed my own baby #3 into my hands during a waterbirth. It was a beautiful birth and very hands off. After the head was out I looked at my midwife and said "help" and she check for the cord, but that was it. She was 10 lbs, 10 oz.

What a small world, I just got a new nook book written by a NICU doctor and the last story I read was about a mom with Vasa Previa that was undiagnosed but thankfully baby survived, though he was thisclose to bleeding out. Then to come here and read your story, and the PP's. Wow.

She is absolutely stunning and a true miracle. Beautiful birth story!
