Only home for two hours when I was summoned to another birth. This time a first time mama, at home. Realizing that a birthpool, though wasn’t part of the birth plan, would help this labor tremendously, I scurried around town, at 3am, purchasing a new hose from Walmart and running to grab a tub from the birthcenter. These are things that make births memorable.
Once back at the parents home, the tub proved to be the life saver. Tiny baby Gloria Magdalene was born into her mamas hands at 8:38am, on Labor Day morning. She weighs 6-15 and is cute as a button. So proud of this mama and her amazing Doula husband.
