Very Sad News

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that River Raintree had her Quad babies via extraction this morning. Mama and babies are doing as well as can be expected. Maybe she'll share her story with us when she's feeling up to it.


  1. Oh no ! that is my worst nitemarh !

    Am parying for her, and for me, please god don't let this nitmare hapen to me and my sweet babes.

    I just so want a peicful naturl birth and she was such an insperation to me.

  2. I am thinking of her, sending rapid healing from this foul intrusion on the sancitity of her goddess body.

    Please pass on this address for her, I think she'll need it.

  3. do we know how she is ?

    I just feel so bad for her, she so didn't want this. she just wanted to do this right.

    do we know why she had an extraction ?

    wasn't her husband against UC ?

    did he force this onto her ?

    My heart is so heavey reding this terrible news.

    I'm lighting candles of hope that next time she gets her real birth.

  5. Oh river, my heart is breaking :( next time maybe you'll be able to think more positively and avoid this happening next time. I will light some candles for you and you children who were ripped from the womb before they wanted to be earthside:(

    I'll pledge 10% of DH's fifth job's salary for the legal fund. Just as soon as he has got together the cash to get my imported salt water.

    Yes people, we are GOING FOR IT !!!

    Merbaby here we come ( =

    Or at least we will if he ever stays awake long enough to do the deed. I had Merlins and Wand happily playing chess in the double decker baby wrap (I do wish they'd make a larger size, by six the kids are finding it a bit cramped for one, let alone two) and was hot to trot but DH fell asleep before I've even got my lac-baps out of the nursing holes.

    Will he EVER truly consider my needs ?
