"Botany born at 5.15pm 22 August by forceps delivery. 6lbs 15oz. Epic nightmare labour. Am utterly knackered but mum and baby doing well. Whole story soon".

Welcome to the world, Botany. The internets have been patiently awaiting your arrival.

Yahoo! So happy to read of this great news but FORECEPS -- yikes!

On a weird side note, please let Mare know that at one point foreceps were a secret held very close to the vest by a royal family until it leaked out into general OB use. So her daughter got royal treatment to arrive into this world. Congratulations.

Woo hoooooo! Terrific news! Thanks for passing it on! (I've been off the Internet for several days with a dead computer, and for once I'm glad -- I know I would have driven myself nuts waiting for the other shoe to drop all this time!)
