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!
