Please welcome Louise Focazio, born right here at home, 12:37 AM, about 90 seconds after the late-night arrival of the midwife. This is my second child born right here at home. I highly recommend homebirth for anyone planning to have kids.


Shown here, from left to right, taken about 10 minutes post birth.

My mother-in-law, Arlene, who wrangled the kids while I helped Paula with the labor.

My daughter Evelyn, who is checking mom with a stethoscope.

My wife Paula, who, given the incredible effort of birth, seems rather chipper.

Lousie, who is yawning.

My son Martin, who was a super-helpful kid throughout the pregnancy and afterward.

I'm now equipped to sleep less for a while.

Over & Out
