I had the pleasure of assisting a fabulous couple with their fist birth back in June. They sent me a few pictures to share with you. This strong mother labored like a pro. Not only did she give birth early, but her entire labor and birth was about three hours. Lucky girl! (This was also the day that I had two mommas give birth, so I was grateful for a short labor.)
While pushing, we noticed baby wasn’t coming down quite as nicely as we needed and in a slightly awkward position. So, we had momma stand up and push in a supported squat. She pushed this way through several contractions, which was just enough to get the baby in a better position and then we were cooking.
