Mylo Penelope

Mylo’s family was such a joy to partner with.  Her mom stayed active throughout her pregnancy and was very diligent to eat healthy and nutritious food.  Taking good care of her body led to a very favorable labor and birth.   By the way, she’s an expert “hula hoop dancer” with such grace and ease that it is breathtaking to watch.  She is also a very calm mama and it was incredibly peaceful to be present at Mylo’s birth.  

Mylo entered this world at 1:35 a.m. on October 25, 2016.  She was born in her home, into the water of a birthing pool and was welcomed by her amazing mama, daddy and her grandmother. Mylo’s big brother slept through it all!  When he woke up, he had a new baby sister. What an adorable little baby girl!

Mylo weighed exactly 8 pounds and measured 21 inches tall.

She is her parent’s second child, first girl and their first HazelTree Baby.

Violet Whimsey

Peaceful waterbirth

With eighteen minutes into the new day, little Violet Whimsey made her arrival into this world.  Not knowing yet, her parents discovered that their third child would be a precious little girl.  Her name, Violet Whimsey brings the quality of being fantastic, playful and fanciful.  

HazelTree baby

This matches the tone of the evening she was born, as it was certainly a captivating and whimsical birth.  It was a rather quiet and calm evening for a beautiful and memorable water birth, her mom and dad so close and eager to pour out all their love into their new little one. Sweet Violet has a big sister and big brother who are head over heals in love with her, and who are ready to show her the ropes of life.      

What a joy and delight to partner with Violet’s mom through the entire pregnancy!  Violet Whimsey was born on September 5, 2016 at 12:18 a.m.  She weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces and measured 19 inches tall.  She is her parent’s third baby, second girl and first HazelTree baby.  

Archer Valentino

 

Archer Valentino decided that it was time to begin the new week with his arrival.  His due date was July 4th, but Archer didn’t want any competition on his birthday, and without his mother’s permission he enjoyed womb-time for another week.

When Archer decided to come, there was no time for getting a music play list ready or for waiting around.  His mom and dad were ready and at 10:03 a.m. on July 11, 2016 he entered the world with strong, loud and healthy vocals.

He naturally stole his parents’ hearts, as well as his older sister’s, who will now have a little brother to play with and enjoy.

What a sweet bundle and a very loved gift! Archer weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces and measured 20.5 inches tall.  He is his parent’s second child, their first boy and their first HazelTree Baby.

 

 

 

Lincoln Robert

Sweet Lincoln made his debut on July 10, 2016 at 5:52 a.m.  

During their labor, his determined parents worked so very hard and well together. Here is a picture of their labor dance. The HazelTree team was humbled by the strength of Lincoln’s mama.   After many hours of strong laboring and pulling out all the stops with midwife tricks, a change of atmosphere was in order.  Lincoln needed the good help of the labor and delivery team at Kootanai Medical Center to be born.

This handsome boy was well worth the effort! Lincoln weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and measured 20.75 inches tall.  He is his parent’s first boy, second child and second HazelTree Baby.

Lincoln’s big sister, is so excited to continue being mama’s helper now that little brother is here!

Bowen Tobias

At 4:45am on July 20th, 2016, baby Bowen made his swift entrance into the world.  His dad won’t ever forget the early morning miracle of catching his son in his arms as the birth team raced to get there.  Bowen weighed 10 pounds and 6 ounces and measured 21.5 inches tall.  He is his parents third child and first HazelTree baby.  What a sweet addition to this wonderful family.    

Just as mama and Bowen were being tucked into bed for some special bonding time, our HazelTree team received a phone call from another mama who was in labor just down the block!  And so if nobody moves houses, Bowen will have a neighbor with exactly the same birthday he has.  How cool is that?  Never a dull moment for a midwife! 

Wesley David Allen

The HazelTree team was just up the street when we received the much anticipated phone call.  It was “go time” and little Wesley was ready for his big debut.  About four hours later, his parents were joyfully welcoming him into the world.  It was a brilliant morning and his parents were so proud!

Wesley was born on July 20th at 9:21am into his daddy’s arms.  His strong mama had a great labor and worked so hard.  He weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 21.5 inches tall.  If nobody moves houses, Wesley will have a neighbor with exactly the same birthday he has.

 

He is his parent’s second son and their second HazelTree Baby.

What a pleasure meeting this new little one and remembering his big brother’s birth from two years ago!
