John Muir Medical Center Birth Story

 This birth was kind of a crazy one. A crazy one in that it felt like Mama just might be pregnant forever.;)Or at least 3 cm forever. As the photographer and thrice-time-birth-er, I know Mama is fully deserving of major eye rolling right about now since she was the one doing all the pregnant and laboring. And man, did she do it with grace and style. I joined her and dad in the early morning at John Muir Medical Center after walking around being said 3 cm for well over a week. Her water broke {hooray!} so it definitely meant baby girl would join us very very soon. Much to everyone’s happiness and extended anticipation. We attempted to sleep while she worked from 6cm to 10… like teenage girls attempt to sleep during a girl-fest sleepover. Well, us girls did that anyway. Dad was really truly trying to sleep. Sorry, dude!;)

And then after a laborious {yet super short for a first-timer} hour of pushing, sweet baby girl was born. And both Mama and Dad got that beautiful, awe-struck look in their eyes that makes capturing moments like these totally worth it.

Enjoy this birth story!
