And again.

Another baby!

Little June-bug was much awaited and she came in her perfect time. Both mama and midwife were so tired after an intense labor but it was worth it. We had a birth team of 5 people, coordinating their support and helping this mom and baby get through the waves and waves of contractions that just kept coming. No breaks. Until the wonderful moment of pushing.

I consider this mother a friend, and I'm in awe of her trust in her body and her baby to know what to do. That wasn't easy. It was hard to be patient waiting for the labor that seemed like it would never come. But babies DO come out, and I'm convinced that they will come at the right moment for them and sometimes not a minute too soon.
