introductions. explanation of what services a doula provides and what we do not, how the CDP works.

discussed the birth videos they have watched and information they have learned over the last month, wrote out a birth plan together, and I showed Wyatt how to do counter pressure during contractions and they practiced together. gave them some "homework" of trying our different early labor positions together and having fun practicing things such as slow dance, and also see what feels the most natural for them.

Birth reflection CDP637
I had been talking with Emma by text throughout the night and early morning as her labor progressed, and I was talking her through her anxiety and restlessness. I urged her to try to take a walk around 4am, because the contractions had slowed down a bit and she wasn’t able to lay down and rest, and then at 5:00 her partner sent a text that they had called their moms to head over, and Emma would like me to come as well. When I got there at 6:15 she was well into active labor and having consistent contractions every 4-5 mins. At 7:00, the midwife showed up and shortly there after she checked Emma/s cervix and she was 7-8 centimeters. I spent the next 2 hours reliving Emma/s partner Wyatt and took over doing slow dancing with her though the contractions with her, and doing some counter pressure. Wyatt and I took turns doing pressure and massage while she stayed in the slow dance pose with me. By this time the birth pool was filled and Emma wanted to get in right away. Once in the tub, the other 2 midwives showed up and Emma’s contractions had slowed down a bit but they were very intense. I poured the water from the tub over her back and arms while she was kneeling in the water, and gave her shoulder and back massages and gave her juice after every contraction. Around 10:30, her body started to naturally push and we helped her get into a couple different position changes during the time her body was bearing down and pushing. Baby boy was born at 11:30 in the water and placed immediately on moms chest. Baby was doing great and breathing fine and cried almost immediately. After just a few mins we helped mom get out of the tub and walk to the bedroom to get on the bed and deliver the placenta. Placenta was delivered 10 mins later, and was intact. Cord was cut after about 30 mins, by dad.
The next couple of hours were spent getting Emma comfortable, getting her juice and food, and working on latching baby to the breast. The midwives did their assessment on baby boy and I helped Emma to the bathroom to urinate and get cleaned up and in some fresh clothes.
I I helped clean up things around the house from the birth and did a couple loads of towels, and when I left at 3:30, mom was snuggled in bed with boy and attempting to take a nap. Dad was in bed with them and everyone was happy and well.
