Welcome Sweet Madeline

Yesterday I spent the entire day at a homebirth. I got called at about 6:30 am and I was off. I arrived at the mother's home and we realized that she was still in early labor so we enjoyed some time visiting and getting a bite to eat. The morning seemed to progress fairly quickly and by 1:35 pm we welcomed Madeline into this world. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 11 oz. and 21 inches long. Mom did an amazing job as this was her first homebirth and her third child! "Daytime" births are a nice welcome as the majority of our babies are born at night. Mom and baby are doing great and I am absolutely ecstatic for their family.

She was sooo alert and kept looking around to see who was there.

Look at those huge feet!

This is how we weigh the babies.
