Joseph was born in the tub 1:19 am June 5, 2017 after just over 3 hours of labor. He's been a boob dweller ever since 😂 Born at 6 lbs 6 oz dropping to 5 lbs 15 oz by day 3 he is now a whopping 10 lbs and 3.5 oz! We were discharged from the care of our midwifes today and it was very sad. They brought us food, did pampering treatments to me and were just so supportive loving and empowering through my entire journey.

I've had 2 hospital births, and 2 out of hospital births (the last one was an accident) but I can understand.

ohmygoodness those eyes!!! He's adorable!

Question about the picture under the "heal & pamper", on the left, under the black salt caramel - what is that? It looks like a mound of loose incense burning on your navel, but I'm thinking I must be wrong about that.

Also, are those real lilies in the bath, or are they candles?

congrats, I couldn't do a water birth. (I tried once) but I did enjoy the post labor tea bath.

I can't do a water birth birth.  It slows down my labor.  I had to get out and walk to get labor started again. After many hours and trying several positions, I finally birthed on my hands and knees.

Question about the picture under the "heal & pamper", on the left, under the black salt caramel - what is that? Chocolate 🍫

It looks like a mound of loose incense burning on your navel, but I'm thinking I must be wrong about that. Nope it's incense burning on my navel you are correct she did it 13 times to help my internal organs go back into place.
Also, are those real lilies in the bath, or are they candles? They are all real flowers and leaves in the bath.

It's called "mother roasting" seems pretty popular for the midwifes in my area to do during the post partum care. I met another midwife in my area yesterday that also does it she's not affiliated with my midwife either.
