March 30, 2020 at 10:30 p.m. Miss Josie Renee made her debut. She was born at home in water. The birth team came racing in to find mom pushing Josie’s head out!! This lady doesn’t mess around when she has babies!
Josie weighs 7lbs 1 oz and is just as cute as can be. She is her parents’ second daughter and their 1st HazelTree baby!

Welcome Sweet Girl!! I’m so glad you’re here!!

Meanwhile….Nicole and I were busy with a family that I’ve known for almost a decade!! I have loved this family from the moment I first met them….big and pregnant with their 1st kiddo, 9 yrs ago. Mama is a tiny little woman with a HUGE personality! You absolutely cannot be in her presence and not smile. So when (three daughters later) they came back into my care, I was elated!

Mom had been fussing about with a piddly labor for 2 days, not really doing much progression but just enough to keep everyone on their toes. By the 3rd day, we were all tired and quite frankly, ready to be done! So… with one last midwifery trick up my sleeve, we finally got labor into a good, active pattern. Once Mom felt the urge to push, her baby was in her arms in 3 minutes!!

Remember when I said, three daughters later…
I wish with all my heart that we had had a video of the reactions when Dad took a look to see what gender baby was!! When he realized that he was looking at a scrotum and a penis…Oh My Word!! He burst out laugh/crying/hands to the side of his head/wide eyed/"NO WAY"! Mom was totally shocked and incredulous; she kept looking to make sure that it was in fact a boy. And I swear I looked like a trained chimp, jumping up and down, hooting with laughter!! A BOY!! A beautiful sweet boy!! I’m getting choked up just typing this.

Samson Shane was born 3/31/20 at 3:35 p.m. in the birth pool set up in his parents dining room. He is the fourth child, the FIRST SON! He weighs 6 lbs 10 oz and is absolutely the cutest little mite I’ve seen in a bit. His three big sisters are over the moon for him! He is one very well loved little brother. <3 <3

March 31, 2020 We had two laboring women, both working hard to have their babies. One was a repeat client and one we’d just met about 3 weeks prior to her delivery. Our team split up…Krysta and Crystal at one birth; Nicole and I at the other. Who would deliver first? That was the question! LOL!!

This new client mama was so quiet and introspective in her labor that it was hard to discern when she was having contractions or not. She labored beautifully in the tub and Angel was born at 2:58 p.m. He weighs 8 lbs 4 oz and he’s his parents 3rd child. Those cheeks!!! Oh My Goodness!!!

Though we haven’t known this family long, they have quickly become HazelTree favorites.

Bienvenidos Angel! I’m so thrilled that you are here.

Here’s a good thing that has come out of COVID-19.
We met this family at the last minute…almost literally. I think we knew them for a little over 1 week before labor commenced.

Joannicius Nikiforos was born 3/27/20 at one minute, 53 seconds into the new day!! He was born in water and into his mama’s hands. He weighs 7 lbs 7 oz. Though we didn’t know this family for very long, they have made an indelible mark on our hearts. We will NEVER forget this birth!!

Thank you for trusting us on such short notice. Thank you for honoring us by letting us be a part of your birth story.

If I hadn’t been at a family function I would have been witness to Caspian Charles’ arrival.

Krysta, Nicole and Crystal were there to attend this mama and from what I hear it was a lovely, peaceful birth. Mama is a birthing queen! Caspian was born at 2:08 pm. He weighed 9 lbs 1 oz. and he measured 21". He is his family’s 2nd HazelTree Baby!!!

Would you just look at him?!? My goodness, he’s a good looking boy! (Is it just me or are HazelTree Babies just the cutest?)

Feb 16. Before Krysta went off call, we had an understanding that if "this" mama went into labor she was "NOT missing her birth so you’d better call me!" LOL!! We get like that sometimes…coming off call to attend a birth. Anyway…

Judah Daniel was born at 7:56 p.m. on 2/16/20. He weighed 8 lbs even. His mom doesn’t mess around when she has babies. Shortly after I got my gloves on, here he came!! He was exuberantly greeted by his mom, dad, grandmas and several siblings. Judah is his parents 6th child, their 4th son and their 2nd HazelTree Baby.

Welcome Sweet Judah!! You are loved, Sweet Boy. So much!

EDIT: Oliver’s mama sent me a couple of photos which I’ve added in the comments.

Feb 12 at 1:45 a.m. we welcomed Oliver David Edmond to the planet. He weighed 7 lbs 12 oz when he was born. He is the 5th child, the 3rd son and his parents 1st HazelTree baby. He was happily greeted by all his siblings as well as two doting dachshunds, 2 rabbits, a couple of kitty-cats and a mini hedgehog. He is one lucky little guy to be a part of such a wonderfully gregarious and loving family. <3 <3

I don’t have a photo of Oliver but this drawing pretty much says it all. <3 <3 <3

Remember when I made a public confession about being so far behind on posting photos of HazelTree Babies???

World Health Organization!!!Close contact and early, exclusive breastfeeding helps a baby to thrive.

A woman with COVID-19 should be supported to
• breastfeed safely

EDIT…. Reduced pricing??

Are any placental encapsulators out there willing or able to do an encapsulation pro bono? I have a client in great need so I thought I’d ask. <3 <3 <3

HazelTree Families,

I am publically confessing and profusely apologizing…I am soooooo far behind on posting newborn photos. I haven’t forgotten or skipped you or your sweet babe. I promise!!

Somewhere in the midst of caring for clients, catching babies, moving facilities, undertaking an ENORMOUS construction project (the new birth suite is spectacular btw) switching to a new electronic health record program (with a incredibly steep learning curve) etc, etc…your little loves’ photo on FB got pushed to the back burner.

Please forgive me!!! It’s been eating at me for months!
It’s my plan to flood FB this wknd and get caught up!

I love you all so much! Truly!!

Kim
