Speedy {Literally Outside of the} Hospital Birth

by Birth Without Fear on May 25, 2013

We received an email from Emily Robinson Photography last night about a wild birth she attended the night before that she thought we might like to share. YES! Wild is right! Mama didn’t even make it into the hospital (until after the babe was born)! The midwife was serendipitously right there when they pulled up and calmly caught the baby right outside the hospital doors! Here’s what Emily said in her blog:

“Amy Beth told me she went fast with her first daughter.

She told me she tolerates pain well.

Knowing those things, I thought it would be cool to meet at her house for a “follow along” to the hospital.

I was confident that she wouldn’t be a 24-hour sort of labor. She would wait at the house as long as possible and then we’d get the show on the road when it was time.

Well, little did we realize the show would REALLY be pretty much on the road. By the time we arrived at the hospital, baby was ready for arrival.

She wasn’t panicked. She was amazing!! And just as calm and collected was her midwife, who was miraculously waiting at the door for us when we arrived.

Dad rounded up a wheelchair and it was the first time I ever saw a mother be wheeled INTO the hospital holding her new baby. Usually that happens a couple of days later, and the wheelchair ride is the way out…

Baby Sienna is absolutely perfect and beautiful. Big sis got to come by and say hello and give her a kiss. It was the fastest, most incredible, beautiful, wild birth I’ve ever had the pleasure to document.

Boom! Here she is!”
