I was like a kid on Christmas morning when I got the text from this mama saying her water had broke! I had thought I was going to miss this birth due to a previously scheduled vacation right on her due date. But just in the nick of time....Cairo made his entrance into this world...fast and furious!!
I arrived to a screaming mama, and supportive daddy in the birth tub in the throws of labor.
The baby was already crowning when I walked in the door. I barely made it, but so thankful I could catch the last couple contractions and the main event!
Big Brother, Rio, came in to meet his new brother.
having placenta contractions...
Making "placenta prints".
Of course the Midwife had to examine her own placenta.
he really liked daddy's necklace...
Midwife, Alina, checking everybody out.
