Introducing Mia Yokoyama Haack

0 comments suggest edit

This morning at 3:17 AM, Mia Yokoyama Haack was born weighing in at 7lb 8.5 oz. Now my world domination crew is complete!

DSC_0013Mia is a fast little one as labor started around 11 PM and she was delivered only four hours later!

This time around, we did a water birth at a birthing center which involves the momma sitting in a big tub for the last part of labor and delivery, which made for a much more comfortable experience than last time. I think she’d definitely recommend it.


We were back home by 6:30 AM which just amazes me. Momma and Baby are doing well. I’m still getting over my cold, but I think the adrenaline of the whole experience helped a lot. :)
