WELCOME NEWEST ABILENIANS!
January ended up being a super busy month for my students and clients! Before we could even finish up the series of birth classes, one of the couples had their baby! Two days after we wrapped with Class 10, another little one arrived! And the next day, ANOTHER! We are still awaiting the arrival of one more little bumpkin and I can't wait!!! Here are a few pics from all the excitement!
This little one arrived a lot earlier than we thought he would! He wasn't due until the beginning of February, and since mom went well past her guess date with baby #1 you can image how shocked we were when he decided he wanted a January birthday!
This birth was so fun, especially since I got to see my doula mentor, Sarah Shaver! She is currently a student midwife and I'm so thankful that she and the other student midwives will be able to provide Abilene women with even more wonderful options for birth in our area!
It was also super fun, because this mommy is one of the coolest! All smiles between contractions - don't you love how positive she is??
I had so much fun being this couple's doula! They are great because they put up with my silly Aggie jokes (Red Raider fan over here!). Mom and Dad were such a great team and had a beautiful natural hospital birth. We were all so pleased with the wonderful support from the hospital staff.
I just love the excitement in this photo. It pretty much sums up the reason I love my job. If you'd love to have an amazing birth experience, it starts with education and having a supportive birth team. If you're expecting, it's time to start preparing - yes, already!
