The Birth of Ryder

Change of plans.

.

Sometimes we go our entire pregnancy dreaming of what our birth will look like and then… plans change.

We shift.

.

While plans changed for this sweet family the ultimate goal did not.

.

A physiological autonomous Family centered birth.

.

I walked into the room at 11:07 PM , greeted by a sweet familiar smile from Liz who was busy physically supporting mama. Dad who was actively encouraging his partner.

.

Moments later we heard “I feel him, he’s coming.”

.

Doctor was called.

.

Everyone stayed back allowing mama to labor baby down. Partner and Doula never leaving her side.

.

“Let me know if you want my help” the doctor expressed.

.

And it wasn’t until Mama asked for assistance that hands became tools.

.

11:38PM

Ryder was born. 🤎.

& a sense of relief washed accross moms face.

SHE did it.

.

He was here.

..

This is collaborative care.

.

This is what birth can be.

.

We can honor families wishes even when plans change.

.

We can use our Hands as tools when needed, and sit on them when those tools aren’t needed.

.

Birth Center of Bloomington Normal collaborates with OBs when a transfer is needed or higher level care is required . OBGYN CARE happens to be one them . 🤍

OBGYN : Dr. Santiago
