Before you proceed, please be aware that the photo diary detailing Rayna's birth is quite graphic. It shows, in detail, her entrance into the world. It includes a fair amount of my skin, as well as photos of Rayna's emergence (a bit purple and covered in vernix and mucous) and a photo of the placenta, which shows quite a bit of blood. They are pictures of the birth process itself and if you are not prepared to view this, please hit the back button on your browser.
