"I spent the day in communication with Dani, knowing that tonight might be the big night. At 9:40 pm I got the message that her water had broken and around 10:30pm her contractions had slowed and they were off to try and sleep a bit.
At 12:30am the call came in and I packed up my stuff and headed out the door. I got to their home at 1:00 am and found Dani in the birth pool calmly breathing through her surges. Her husband and mother were at her side while their older daughter slept upstairs.
The midwife had arrived at the same time I did, and she assessed Dani at 5cm dilated. It seemed so calm, so serine and everyone just relaxed while Dani did the peaceful work of opening up for their daughter to come.
James stayed at her side and then joined her in the birth pool to help her through her surges.
By 2:00 am things were picking up, Dani was ready and everyone realized this wasn’t going to be a long wait. Little Molly was born at 2:21 am; Dani reached down and pulled her daughter up through the water and onto her chest. And moments later big sister Lyla came down and joined her parents and little sister in the birth pool while grandma stood by the pool a huge smile on her face.”
The whole thing went incredibly smoothly, with Dani only needing to push a few times. This homebirth was beautiful and peaceful and little Molly arrived into a calm home full of love.
