WELCOME Baby Lincoln!!!!! My best friend delivered her BEAUTIFUL baby girl on Thanksgiving day!! Baby Lincoln’s birth was calm, relaxing and so beautiful!!! I got the text to “head over” around 7:50 that evening. It had been a long day since we hosted our family thanksgiving but I knew that miss L was coming to join us earth side so very soon (her mom had been texting me all day). Lincoln was 5 days past her due date and finally ready! I arrived at the hospital around 8:15 and mom seemed to be doing great and was waiting for her birthing tub to be filled. Once full she hopped in and the labor got progressivly harder. I was in awe of this momma as she was so calm, so peaceful and so ready to bring this life she was creating into this world. As the room was filled with Enya and loud clicks from my camera we started to hear in her moans that it was almost time. She tried different positions and could not get comfortable and we could hear her body was starting to push. Around 10 pm it happened, she birthed this perfect little being, all 10 pounds 6 oz. of her..and EN CAUL (which is said to be a “veil of protection” and considered sacred in other countries.) She never screamed, she never cried out in paid and It was amazing and beautiful. This super woman made natural child birth look effortless and easy, she trusted her body and her birth team. Her husband was nothing but supportive, loving and present. I am so thankful that she allowed me to be apart of this moment. After many losses and heartache baby Lincoln was a beacon of hope and their beautiful “rainbow baby” to join thier family of now 4. Below are photo’s of this magnificent birth as it unfolded. Breaking free from the belly and her amniotic sac! Baby L’s beautiful sac she came out in!!
CONGRATS to this sweet new family of 4!!!!!
