Marielle # 35

This is Marielle just hours after her birth. What an angel!
Marielle's mother came in at 4 cm and since this was her second baby things seemed to progress quickly. She went from 4 cm to fully in an hour and a half! Marielle was born with a nuchal hand but her mother didn't tear. The placenta took its time in coming but eventually came out with a bit of a tug. Four hours after she gave birth, they packed up their things and started going home. They were surprised to hear they'd have to wait at least six hours postpartum before we could let them go home.
