A new mom

Just in time for Mother’s Day, a new mom met her baby!  Here are the highlights:

  • She spent most of her labor at home listening to good music, changing positions often, walking outside, using water therapy, and resting.
  • Her doctor made a surprise house-call to check-in and reassure. 
  • Her husband caught the baby over an intact perineum–hoorah! 
  • Baby had uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact with his mama.  When I left, he was still warm and snuggled–having never left mom’s chest.

Happy Mother’s Day to a precious new family!
