My first birth! My client A had a beautiful, perfect, baby girl on Thursday. Although I was not in the OR for her scheduled cesarean birth, I was able to provide some support postpartum... although with A's and P's wonderful family and friends, this is one well-supported family, doula or no!
This mom is such a natural mother and seeing her with her toddler and newborn was truly heartwarming. This dad is a very warm and strong individual and there are few things more sweet than a dad and his little girl. And Big Sister V. is about as darling as can be.
I felt humbled and honored to be included, even on the periphery, on the day of K's birth.
