Wednesday morning, contractions started but they were not very close together or impressive. We went to the midwife's office at 1:30 because they weren't stopping, and she informed us that I was already 6 cm dilated. It was hospital time!
We got to the hospital, got checked in, and the midwife broke my water at 3:17. Exactly two hours later Eden arrived. To say it was a fast labor is a bit of an understatement. It was exactly what I had hoped for: no drugs and quick.

Mama and baby resting together- it was a big day!
Since baby and I were both doing well, and since I do not voluntarily stay in a hospital longer than necessary, we came home as soon as we could, which was 24 hours after her birth. It has been busy here since Alfie's arrival, but it's also pretty amazing.
The Bambino and Baby Alfie together- he is so proud of being a big brother!
