The Midwife that assisted during the birth, Åse Gretten Mørch, she said it was a totally natural birth, she also said that Ari was a great support and that he got a totally different role than he would have in a hospital where she says the man often feels like a guest. Mørch has during her 14 years assisted in 300 home births

Isadora is a character in Ari Behn's first book, I've been told. So he certainly must like the name.
Really? Is anyone here who read it?

Wow, I'm impressed, hello magazine actually had their facts right for once. Usually they mix up the scandinavian royals.
yes, they do don't they, well thankfully they got it right this time...it's always a bit frustrating to see errors like the ones Hello usually makes...anyway, I simply love Leah Isadora, not only is her name beautiful (and unique) but she's such an adorable child.
