It was clear as soon as I walked into mom, Kelly's, delivery room that things were going to be moving more quickly than anyone expected.
After being on bed-rest for weeks, Kelly had been excited to reach 37 weeks. Her 2 previous children had both arrived by 36 weeks. After 37 weeks she no longer needed to be on bed-rest as baby could just come when she wanted. And surprise, surprise, Willow hung out until 40-weeks!
Kelly and her birth team decided to induce on her due date.
Her doula, Lindsey with Belly to Cradle, LLC, called me a little after 1pm to let me know that they'd just broken mom's water and suggest I get ready and start making my way to the hospital. Something told me I shouldn't wait long, so I grabbed my lunch and headed out. Just over 30 minutes after I made it to the hospital, Willow made her earth-side debut!
I'll never forget Kelly's shout, "she's here! You're finally here!"
I was honored to be a part of the Christenson-Martin family's day, just as I am honored to have a small role in any family's birth-day!
