Birthing the placenta
Paisley weighed 8 pounds and 6 ounces and came out with a full head of jet black hair
Our birth lasted 16 hours start to finish
I am so thrilled that our birth was free of interventions and free of complications for both myself and Paisley! I am so happy with how perfectly everything went and so thankful for how respected and protected I felt by the people I had invited into my birth experience. Brenda showed an incredible calming energy and really made me feel safe. John’s support was something I can’t describe in words.
