Maria Constance was born at 3:56 am on DAY and DATE (edited to protect privacy and her birthdate!). She decided to come to us about two weeks early, which is wonderful. She weighed 5 lbs. 14 oz. and measured 19.5 inches. She is beautiful and very healthy. Stephanie birthed her at our home, in the water as planned, with me by her side. We have two wonderful midwives who helped in creating this wonderful experience. What an amazing woman Stephanie is, and being a partner in the birth of our daughter has redefined the world around me.
We will call our daughter Mia. We decided on this name years ago and loved the sound of Mia as a shortened name for Maria. We always said that if we were to have a girl, this would be her name. We are so lucky to finally meet her. I’ve posted a few photos, and will provide many more through the years. So, happy birthday to our baby girl!
