Baby Ryan was this sweet family third boy. This was such a wonderful fast birth. What us birth workers call fast and furious. Mom had been txt with me that she had some back pain and went to bed early since she had already been told she was 3cm the previous week . We both knew if labor kicked in it would be an all nighter.
Mom txt around 12:30 am her bag of water had released in bed. But she got up and cleaned up and laid back down , or tried too. Around 1:53 am she txt she felt sick and the pain was more intense her lower belly (insert a English accent ) a few minutes later she txt me to come over. I called her to listen to her breathing and decided that she should meet me at Flagler since this was her 3rd and there was no real pattern.
She met me at the hospital around 2:50 am and we walked to LDR together . Triage was slow! She was checked and she was 9 CM! Mom hit transition and was asking for a epidural . She wanted the low intervention room but since she 'verbally asked for a epidural" they wheeled her to a 'regular " room. Things went super fast as she was in the room we helped her onto the bed and I heard pushing sounds. Baby Ryan was born quickly after a few pushes at 3:15 am! He weighed 8 pounds and 9 oz.
Mom achieved the natural birth she wanted! After two previous medicated births.
I was also her birth doula and photographer but dad was serving as main support as he desired too and did a wonderful job!
Just after mom was helped into the bed she grabbed the bar as she was pushing.
A few pushes and Baby Ryan was pulled up to her chest with dad's help
The first realization that SHE DID IT NATURALLY Dad holding his newest son. LOOK AT THOSE LIPS
