When I met and talked with Katy, I remember leaving with such admiration and respect for this expecting momma. She was informed, knew what she wanted as far as her birth, and had done so much already to make it happen. She wanted to have a natural labor with the help of Full Circle Women’s Care. I had heard so many good things about this practice, including how supportive they are of moms and their wishes, and was excited to see the midwife/OB in action!
Fast forward a few months to June 23rd. After an appointment, Katy learned that she was sitting pretty at 4cm! She (and everybody else) thought it would be any day now. Her little one decided he was pretty comfy and decided to wait until July 3rd to make his grand entrance. At 6am I received a text saying she was having steady contractions! By 7am, everybody was up at the hospital!
Such strength, beauty, and support as she works through natural labor to bring her baby earthside.
One final push and Braddox arrived at 11:14 am, weighing 7lbs 13 oz and 19.75 inches long.
After having issues with breastfeeding her daughter, she wondered for months how her son would do. Sweet relief as he quickly latches on.
Time for this big sister to meet her baby brother!
Braddox was surrounded by a loving family anxious to get their hands on him!
Congrats to Katy and her family! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a special day!
