It doesn't matter how many times you see birth, it's always such an inspiring experience. I was so proud of this momma's strength and determination as she worked through her unmediated delivery. After baby was born she went to the baby bed for her newborn exam. Like all babies during their exam - she was not a fan - she wanted her momma! But when dad started talking to her his voice, among the chaotic sea of nurses and doctors, instantly calmed her. She opened her eyes to look at the face of what was clearly a familiar voice. It was such a beautiful exchange and clear recognition, I will never forget it. This little lady is so loved already. It was an honor to be there as she joined this crazy beautiful world.
