Mr. Archer Ellis joined his family just 24 minutes into the new day of April 10, 2016. He weighed 8lbs and was 20.5 inches tall. He is the 2nd child and 1st son for his parents. Archer’s birth is what we call a Redemptive Birth. When a previous birth didn’t go as planned, it can often leave very strong emotions behind. Archer’s sweet mama and grandmother worked incredibly hard together. I truly believe that the connection these two women shared is what enabled Archer’s mama to have the home, water birth she dreamed of. Just look at that triumphant, utterly empowered woman!!! To my eyes, there is nothing more beautiful than this!! My midwife’s heart could just burst with pride!
