Such a cutie! I was very honoured to be part of the team who welcomed baby Carter earth side this past spring. It poured rain that day, I remember it well. But the rain wasn’t about to interfere with a very special delivery! Mom had a long haul during labour, but was so strong and committed to doing everything she could to ensure the safe arrival of her son. With her mom and her doula by her side, Baby Carter was born in the wee hours of Saturday, March 31st and was just perfect! Mom was so excited, and in some shock that her little guy was finally here after a long labour. In no time, the two were bonded quite obviously, mom was infatuated. It was a complete honour and blessing to have been part of this very special moment in this family’s life. What a lucky boy Carter is to have such a great Mom and Grandma!
What an adorable little peanut, right? A wonderful delivery, albeit a wee bit lengthy, that I am so excited and proud to have been witness to. Mom and Dad were a great team, and despite a very long labour, Mom kept her strength up and was an absolute rock star in the delivery room! There were lots of bets taken by family and friends on when this little bean would arrive…and whether she would need a pink hat or a blue hat! Needless to say, this baby girl surprised both Mom and Dad, (but not Auntie L) on her birthday and her gender! I could tell Dad was a “goner” as soon as he laid eyes on her, so sweet to see someone so in love with their baby, not to mention their partner! Mom worked her butt off to bring Piper into the world, and man, once Piper decided she wanted to be born, she sure let Mom know!
I am so happy for this lovely couple and thank them from the bottom of my Oola Doula heart for allowing me the honour of being at Piper’s birth and to support you and welcome Piper into the world! Congratulations to first time parents, who are already, making it look too easy :)
