The birth of Adler {Breath of Life Birth Center }

April 03, 2014  •  3 Comments

This sweet mama and I met late in her pregnancy, but having her birth documented was important since her husband would be out of state when the baby would be coming, serving in the military. The big day finally came, she called to say her water had broken! We all had a humorous moment as she arrived at the birth center, with clear evidence of ruptured waters! Momma settled in quickly. She had made a beautiful banner for her coming son. We all worked together to put it up for her.  Her doula and long time friend arrived shortly after we did. They set out to braiding her hair in a beautiful crown. Soon the decision was made to go outside for a walk to see if we could get things moving along. We were all happy for this mama when the phone rang and it was her husband. Her contractions were strong and she had to put the phone down to get through it. But you could see the relief on her face just hearing from him. Things picked up quickly and momma moved, changed positions, enjoyed laboring in the tub.  Finally baby was coming, she used various positions before finally finding herself in the arms of her friend and doula. Mama worked really hard to get her baby out. The birth team also showed just how skilled and experienced out of hospital midwives are. Another beautiful Breath of Life Birth!
