When I met this family I knew that Mom was determined to have a water birth. It was her plan from the beginning and when the time came for her baby to come there was not another option! I got "The Text" later one evening around 9pm that her contractions were very steady and that she was ready for me. When I arrived the pool was blown up and mom was ready to get in. Unfortunately, the water heater didn't quite have enough hot water to fill up the tub and her birth team worked hard boiling water on the stove trying to get it warm for her. Mom labored for an hour or so on her birth ball waiting for that glorious pool to be ready. When the time came she practically dove in! Once in the pool things really picked up and within the next hour her sweet baby boy was born, exactly the way she planned. Big sister watched the whole thing while the middle sister slept. Moms husband and mother never left her side as she worked so hard to bring her baby earthside. It was such a beautiful birth and it is always a joy to work with A Mother's Love Midwifery and Willow Birth Services, they always serve their clients so well!
