Last night, May 2, at 10:59 p.m. Krysta & Nicole welcomed Cedric Axe earthside. Krysta told me that this was such a calm, peaceful birth. Mama labored introspectively & beautifully. Her husband was ever attentive & always by her side. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to witness it myself.
Cedric weighs 6 lbs 13 oz and is 20.5" tall. I can’t wait to meet him and smooch his sweet little bald head.
Welcome to this big beautiful world, Cedric. You make it a better place!! … See MoreSee Less

April 29th at 1:33 a.m. I had the honor of being a witness to Arella Embyr’s arrival. She came FAST! In fact we barely had time to set up our birth gear. Arella’s 14 y.o. sister helped out, acting as a soothing presence for her mama as well as a birth assistant for me. When Arella was born into the water of the birth pool, she was quickly placed on mama’s chest to see her new world. Her big eyes took it all in, peacefully gazing at her parents and creating quite a stir in all our hearts. Miss Arella weighs 8 lbs 1 oz. She’s 19.5 inches tall. She is the 5th child of an incredible family and their 1st HazelTree baby. Her cheeks!!! I just want to smooch them! … See MoreSee Less

4/18/20 at 5:37 a.m. I had the incredible honor to witness Rebel Richard make his entrance to this crazy planet. His birth is one I will never forget, ever! His parents labored for many, long, hard hours, never giving up, never failing to do all the tricks we asked them to do. Rebel was born into water and placed immediately on his mama’s chest. He took a second to "plug in" but once he did, he had quite a time loudly telling us all about his journey!
Rebel weighs 8 lbs 14 oz. and is 22 inches tall. He is his parents 2nd child, their 1st son & their 1st HazelTree Baby. Though we’ve only known Rebel’s parents since mid-March, they will forever own prime real estate in our hearts. ❤ … See MoreSee Less
