Back from birth

Everyone congratulate my client on her beautiful birth (she does read here)! I’ll share the full birth story at a later date (once I’ve shared it with Mom) but here’s the quick run-down:

– Cytotec for 5 hours which did very little to get labor going

– Water broken and immediate active labor (possibly immediate transition!)
– Asked for epidural 45 minutes later – anesthesiologist busy with another mom and didn’t make it in for 45 more minutes

– Anesthesiologist arrived as mom was pushing so no epidural

– 3 pushes and he was out
– Beautiful babe almost 8 lbs. healthy as can be! Mom and baby are doing great and she’s rightly very proud of herself seeing as she’s the only person she’s ever known to give birth naturally…she looked very strong and beautiful and used her voice and body well. Yea Mom! For all intents and purposes, this was a very intense 1 1/2 hour labor.
