Baby-to-Be Has Arrived! (From Bali With Love)

Sorry for the delay in posting but I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl on Saturday, February 27th. She is absolutely perfect and her Papi and I feel so blessed.

For those who enjoy hearing about the "minor" details: I awoke early Saturday morning around 3 AM feeling rather uncomfortable. Around 4:30 I decided my discomfort was, in fact, labor pains. I got up, prepared my belongings, took a shower, walked around the house and called the doctor. I arrived at the birthing center around 8:00 at 6 cm dilated...now, fast forward to 12:25 and my beautiful baby girl was born...completely natural with no drugs, IV's or machines...only a little episiotomy incision. I feel so blessed that everything turned out so beautifully.

Here she is...Akira Juliana


  1. She is so cute!! I can't believe you did it without meds, that had to be so painful! Way to go!


  2. You had no meds?! Can't believe it.
    She is beautiful Anna.
