Ahh home births. There’s just something so cozy and calm about them. It’s incredible to be a part of something so powerful, every single time. This was their FOURTH little baby, third girl (and third home birth)! They were incredibly excited to meet their little one, and mom waited oh so patiently.

Attending the birth of a friend is such a special honour! When my friends value me, and let me know I am well worth the money, it gives me allll the feels. This was the first birth that I have gotten called to over Facebook Messenger, ha! And it was my first birth of 2017! Connor’s mom and I were chatting about her contractions, and then all of a sudden her husband messages me to tell me to meet them at the hospital…you know it’s the real deal when mom can’t type anymore!
