Baby vdW: Labor Update

Photo on 2011-06-13 at 14.38 #2

My waters broke at 3:30 AM and we have been laboring for over 12 hours now. My contractions have slowed down a bit but have increased in intensity. In all likelyhood, we'll be meeting our little one tonight!

Please keep us in your prayers!

Talia Christine


  1. Hooray! So happy for you, and awaiting further updates anxiously. Best of luck, and wishing for a fantastic and easy delivery!

  2. I've been reading your blog for some time now, but i'm not sure I've ever cmmented. If ever there was a time to comment, it is definitely now : ) This is very, very exciting news!
    I'm not the praying type, but am definitely sending happy, and healthy, labouring vibes to you all. Giving birth is one of the hardest things a woman does, but it can also be the most magical and empowering. We were made to birth, afterall.
    And, well, you get a baby out of it! Nothing is better than the first 'meet and greet' hours with a newborn. xx

  3. Wow! this is very exciting time for you and I have to say I'm a little jealous. Meeting my two babies was the most ecstatic time of my life ~ wishing you an easy delivery! x

  4. I be keeping all three of you in my thoughts, hope you are all home soon enjoying family cuddles

  9. SO EXCITED FOR YOU! june babies are awesome. i'm actually in the process of posting my birth story on my blog right now! prayers for a safe delivery!!

  10. Talia dear,
    The strong line of your thumb in that picture tells me that you are determined and brave. Kia kaha, be strong! Breathe deep and know that you are loved and supported! See you on the other side

    With love from wobbly Canterbury,
