|We were so fortunate to have a wonderful water birth experience.
Hayden arrived at sunset when all the lights in the room were off and only the 6 candles were going. Very special!
The labour was about 25 hours and I had to do it all in an upright position. The minute I lay down, my contractions slowed down. So most of the time I was standing and walking.
I was so fortunate to be able to catch Hayden when she came out and bring her straight to my chest. She was so peaceful and only cried a while after. They left the cord attached for about 15 minutes before cutting it and from my chest she went straight to my husband’s chest. It was really so peaceful for her. She did not go into distress once during the whole birth process.
