I am eternally grateful that we have been given permission by the mother to share the following series of pictures! However, please be warned that the following pictures include graphic images of a baby’s crowning and birth!! Beautiful pictures…amazing pictures….but graphic nonetheless.
This little girl was her mama’s first born – born in her bedroom in a birth pool after a fairly fast labor and weighing in at 10 pounds even.
After the head is out, we waited for a minute and a half before she pushed…and mom pushed and baby didn’t come. Mom pushed again, and baby didn’t birth. I reached in and felt the shoulder and could feel it locked on the pubic bone – so I used 2 fingers and pushed the baby’s shoulder up and swept it around and past the pubic bone.
