I got a call late one Saturday morning that Grace was in early labor. Progress was really slow throughout the day, and since this was Grace’s first baby, I was waiting for a good established active labor pattern before heading over to the hospital. Sadly, it never came, and by that evening I got a text that the doctor was talking about a c-section. I rushed over to East Jefferson, and when I arrived they were just about to wheel Grace out of the room. I made it just in time!
While my favorite births to document are unmedicated, there is something so incredible about a cesarean birth! Grace handled the change of plans beautifully, and was just excited to finally meet her little girl!
