In the final weeks of Allye’s pregnancy, the baby was no longer showing noticeable growth. A slow induction began four days after her due date with breaking her water and walking to get things moving. There wasn’t much progression, but after a little bit of pitocin, Allye’s body was taking over with some strong contractions! Soon, she was able to get into the warm tub for some natural pain relief. Allye labored beautifully, with such peace and grace with her husband by her side.
This was it! Allye hadn’t planned on a water birth, but when it came time to push this baby out, climbing out of the tub didn’t sound like such a great idea! It was time!
It was time for Ruby to meet her sister! Of course, she loved her – but how could you not?!
