Welcome Brayden – born to a Warrior Woman.

6aThis darling fella made his debut on 12/23/13 at 7:34 a.m.  He weighs 9 lb. 15 oz. and is 23.5 inches tall!!  His mama was the last of my 2013 contracted clients through Dayspring Midwifery.  This was also her primary VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) birth.

Brayden’s mama did such a fantastic job with her labor & delivery.  She was so strong and introspective.  She was totally tuned in to her body and the process going on.   When it came time to begin pushing, she followed my voice & suggestions and did a spectacular job of controlling and working with her body’s natural rhythm and urges.  It was hard work and likely not what she had envisioned but SHE DID IT!!  We had a bit of a wrestling match to get Brayden out, but even with that his mama never lost her cool or her composure.

I wish I had a golden crown to set upon her head!!  She could be the poster mama for VBAC women everywhere.  I am so proud of her and so thankful that I got to journey with her during this incredible time in her life!                                                         My heart overflows…
