Welcoming baby Isabella Jane

Photos by Stacie Joy 

A happy Mother's Day to mothers everywhere...

The East Village has a new resident, born in an at-home water bath on Third Street near Avenue B.

Isabella Jane was born to her parents, Juana and Edward Rivera, on April 15, and she weighs in at six pounds, eight ounces, and is just about 19 inches long. East Village-based midwife Cara Muhlhahn assisted in the delivery; she was present for all four of the family’s births.
Also in attendance were Edward, Jr., 9; Rex, 5; and Luna, 2, plus grandparents and extended family.
Welcome, Isabella Jane!

Celebrating Luna's 2nd birthday



For a post published on Aug. 29, 2019, EVG contributor Stacie Joy shared a photo essay from the home of the Riveras on Third Street. 

On Aug. 7 that year, they welcomed Luna into the family (photo above!). 

This past Saturday (Aug. 7), the Riveras celebrated Luna's second birthday.
Stacie stopped by to photograph happy parents Juana and Edward Rivera and Luna's siblings Edward Jr. and Rex.
The festivities included a rooftop pool party...
... and friends and family...

Welcoming baby Luna



On Aug. 7 at 1:48 a.m., Luna Rivera, weighing 7.2 pounds, arrived in a water bath birth at her parent's home on Third Street.

She was greeted by her mother, Juana Rivera, 33, and father, Edward Rivera, 34. She joins siblings Edward Rivera, Jr., 6, and Rex Rivera, 3.

All three of the Rivera children were birthed at home under the guidance of East Village-based midwife Cara Muhlhahn. (You may have read about her here or here.)

EVG contributor Stacie Joy was at the Rivera house in the days after Luna's birth. Stacie shared these photos — with the Rivera's permission — of Baby Luna's first few days at home.
