Welcome Braden

Say hello to Braden. He was born so very peacefully and gently into his mom’s hands in another beautiful water birth.

His birth is the fifth in his family that I’ve had the privilege to attend. His mom is always amazing as she quietly waits and works and then eases baby into the world.

He’s a tiny but feisty 5 lb 15 oz.  And with six older brothers and one big sister, there will be no shortage of love and attention in store for him!

Welcome Summer

Just how special can a birth be?  Of course every birth is special but for this beautiful baby, there’s a lot of extra special going on.

Meet Summer, who arrived this morning weighing in at 7 lb 4 oz. She’s the sixth baby in her family and I’ve had to honor of greeting each of them.

And they were all born in this pool.

Her big brothers and sisters were very excited to meet her.

As if that’s not enough, she came on her mom’s birthday! I can’t think of a better birthday gift.  Happy Birthday and Happy Birth Day!

Welcome Tirza

Sweet little Tirza arrived last week, missing sharing a birthday with her midwife by just a couple of hours. Mama worked hard and dad was just incredibly loving, encouraging and supportive, truly a labor of love for both.

6 lb 10 of of perfection!

She’s welcomed by an adoring entourage of older siblings, doting aunts and grandmas and extended family.  Congratulations to everyone!

Welcome Reddix

Sweet Reddix Zayne joined us early this morning, arriving peacefully in the water after a short but calm labor.  He’s 7 lb 5 oz of cute and welcomed with much love by his awesome mom and dad and very excited big brother.  Congratulations to everyone!
