Amie’s Birth Story

Around 7:30pm I felt a trickle and I stood up and then there was a gush, I called my mom and told her she would be needing to come over, then called my Doula. I wasn’t have any contractions so I didn’t want to go to the hospital yet. A little before 10pm I had three very intense contractions I was able to walk a few feet before the next one brought me to my knees. I called my Doula and said she needed to get here. Around 10:15 my second Doula arrived an 5 minuets later my Doula arrived. I said we weren’t going to make it to the hospital and they got towels and blankets ready, the whole time my one year old wouldn’t leave my side. I leaned my head on him a few times while pushing. I felt baby start to crown and told my Doula, she checked and baby’s head was born with another push baby was born at 10:30pm. I heard baby start to cry my Doula said baby was nice and pink then I remembered to ask ” What is it?”And she said it was a girl. She passed her back to me and I started crying, I sat down and started nursing her right away and then my one year old decided he was going to nurse too and we waited for the paramedics to arrive. Then we got our first ambulance ride and I got to cut the cord.
