Baby David was born in the middle of the afternoon (yay for sunlight!) at Rosemary Birthing Home.
Let me show you his birth story!
I walked in right around transition, I assume. There were no smiles at this point.
wishing it would be over soon. well, you will get your wish, mama!
Labor is hot work! Midwife Alina tried to keep mama as cool and comfortable as possible.
At this point the tub upstairs was full, so we changed locations... and wardrobes.
At this point Sarah was 9 cm dilated.
10 min. after being checked at 9 cm, the baby was born! WHAT?!
there's that beautiful smile!
Aunt Amy watching the happy family.
she couldn't hide her joy!
Sarah was just smitten with her new baby boy. It was precious to watch.
