Precipitous

I met this lovely family in dire straits. Close to her due date and with her first labor lasting only a few hours, G and I didn't have much time to get to know each other, but our trust was built quickly. She called one night just after midnight with something like gas pains and I rushed right over, luckily I live close by.
Just over an hour after she called me, her baby was born in the bathtub without water (a shower had been running previously) and this little boy woke to his new baby brother.

This has to be my favorite picture ever! You are such an amazing midwife! How lucky we were to cross paths when we did!
