A brand new birth story!
Just 11 days ago, Baby Meyer was born swiftly on a Saturday morning. I met this Mother for the first time only three days earlier. Just in time! I arrived, that morning, to find her laboring in the birth tub in her beautifully lit bedroom. Her husband and her doula, Tammy Watkins, were by her side. Midwife Kari and the nurses of Willowsong Midwifery Care arrived shortly thereafter, with baby soon to follow. The highlight was watching Mama announce "It's a girl!...That was awesome!" :-)
Movie to come soon!
