Hail!
So, to those of you who don't know, my girlfriend is pregnant. Well, tomorrow she is being induced, and our baby girl, Lillian Aurora, will join our world. I am so excited to be a father, words cannot express how happy I am that this day has finally come!! Just thought I'd share the fact that the time is finally here. I'll be uploading pictures later on this week.
Skul!

That's great news, I'm so pleased for you! Sending big Welsh hugs and blessings to you and your girlfriend for a safe and speedy delivery.
Fer thu hal! (sorry it won't give me the thorn rune, and it's not norse but Anglo-Saxon - it means be strong in spirit!)

May the baby be blessed with eternal love from the Gods and his parents, which undoubtedly will be just fine :)

Have fun being a dad, my girl was already pregnant when I came into the picture.

Though the kid isn't my blood, I love him as my own. I am sure you're going to love being a daddy, I do.

Break out the Berkana runes!

What I do have here is a birthing candle, with a sachet of lilies tied around it, and a charm interlaced with the string. I also have a tonic I made last night with ground lilies and rose, with a Quartz Crystal. The candle shall be lit when she is crowning, and blown out when the baby has arrived. The tonic will be used to draw a birthing rune on her forehead by feather. Thoughts?

Sounds good to me. Much better than taking a knife and cutting a berkana rune into her wrist.

That thirteenth I know if thane’s son I shall
Wet with sacred mead:
Ne’er will he fall, though hot be the fray,
Nor sink down, wounded by steel.
Havamal 158:1-4

I think singing/chanting Berkana/Berchta/Birch over the sweet wee bairn when you sprinkle her with mead at her naming should suffice.

Congratulations. Children are a blessing.

But if, in the heat of the moment, you forget any of these things, NA, please don't feel you've failed. The gods are much kinder about these things than we realise. Good luck!

YAY!!! A baby!!! How adorable in her little hat and blankie! Does she have the little baby lojack anklet?

(I love how they mostly get issued the same hat and blankie here in the US--no matter where you live, there's a good chance its the teal and magenta blankie and the little girl/boy stripe hat)

Yes this a miraculous moment. For those that do not believe in miracles, I can only say, perhaps they have not experienced the birth of their own child. Reason does not explain it in way that matches the personal experience when it happens to you. I can honestly say I felt different about spiritual matters after I became a father.

Good luck to you and your daughter on your journeyy together,
