I have a sleepy little boy in my arms. Born 9.7 lbs after a vaginal vacuum extraction. Three stitches. Two liters of blood lost during manual placenta extraction. Apgar 9/10/10 - one white hand. He is exhausting work, looks a little like Churchill. Feeling accomplished. Husband marvellous during labour and also now. I have yet to change a diaper in his 48 hours of life.
