At 4:59 Saturday morning I had the privilege of witnessing one bad-ass woman give birth to a gorgeous baby girl. Stephanie is one of my best friends and I love her and her family so much. She asked me to be present at the birth of her third little girl and I couldn’t have been more excited. She had an amazing team in place including a doula, a rockin’ midwife and an amazing husband….oh and little old me;) She took the pain as if it was something she had prepared her whole life for.
I was awaken at 2:30 a.m. to a text saying she was in labor and not to rush out of bed just yet because she just got out of the shower, so I laid back down and somewhere around 3:00 the next text said she was headed to the hospital. I hurried and got dressed and jumped in the car and headed to St.Elizabeth in Edgewood. When I saw her coming down the hall she looked beautiful as always and John’s face was pure excitement. We got to the birthing center and it was like royalty had arrived! They rushed her right into the biggest, best room you can imagine already set up just for her (pays to know the nurses).
