#38 Baby Rea

While I was finishing up with Michealla's birth, my continuity Liza came in very active. She labored on her feet, doing pelvic rocking and looking wide eyed with pain. This is her third child so she knew what to expect but she still had a hard time staying focused and calm.

Around 4:30 in the morning, she had SROM but it was different. The whole chorion came out completely intact and full of fluid. She immediately started pushing and little Rea was born the very next minute! She had a tight cord coil and was small but healthy! The placenta was born 7 short minutes later. It was a beautiful, quiet and calm birth. I have to admit i like delivering babies so early in the morning. There are fewer people there to watch. It is so much calmer!

Born: May 22nd 4:38 am weighing 5 lbs 3 oz.

It's hard work looking this cute!!! :-)
