Kara's First Day — A Visual Birth Story

VBAC birth story

Baby's First Year, meet Kara!

I am so happy to be blogging here at Baby’s First Year to kick off 2012, and would love to introduce all of you to my gorgeous baby girl — Kara Elizabeth.

Kara was born on December 14th, 2011, at 11:11 a.m., weighing 7 lbs., 7 oz., and measured 20 in.

Kara is the fruit of a successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), and I could not be more proud to be able to say that!

In a group photography effort that included my husband, a labor and delivery nurse, my mom, and myself, I managed to obtain a lovely little collection of images from Kara’s first day.

I think one of the nurses grabbed my camera to take this shot, immediately following that final push!
